What are you doing for America Recycles Day (Nov 15)?

According to the U.S. EPA, Americans generate about 250 million tons of municipal solid waste every year, but only recycle around 35 percent it. Recycling conserves vital resources, saves energy, and, in 2012, reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to taking 33 million cars off the road for a year. Recycling also creates green jobs and provides essential resources.
