History of Recycling (Infographic)

Today (November 15) is America Recycles Day, an annual event launched in 1997 by Keep America Beautiful. It is currently the only nationally-recognized day devoted to recycling in the United States.

In honor of the day, here is an infographic from Earth911 about the history of recycling.

As a side note, All Green challenged California schools to collect a million pounds of e-waste in honor of the day. We have events from 11/5-12/3 so check out our website to see if there’s one near you!
