About the Campaign
The Campaign for Recycling Awareness was founded in 2020 to dispel the many myths about recycling plastic, aluminum, and glass. Despite widespread general awareness about recycling, many Americans aren’t doing it. The EPA finds the overall recycling rate is only about 32 percent. Surveys have found many Americans are unaware that goods they are throwing away are 100% recyclable into a variety of new products from carpets to clothing. With more understanding, together we can do much better for the environment we all share.
