Americans are recycling plastic at a rate much lower than they should be. According to the EPA, the overall recycling rate is only 32 percent. Tons of metal, paper, plastic, and other material that could be recycled is not getting reused.
Success is easy. One of the most criticized plastic items is the single-use plastic water bottle. But consider this: If every American recycled just two plastic bottles a week we would solve one of the most manageable parts of the problem. Two bottles a week is less than once every 3 days! Do that and we will solve a major litter issue overnight. It’s your responsibility to make sure that our country and its waterways remain clean and free of litter and that recyclables don’t end up in landfills.
The below resources provide information on why we need access to plastics and how we can help protect our environment by recycling.
