Today is America Recycles Day, and the Great Lakes region is celebrating. This is the 11th year of the day and exists to promote the social, environmental and economic benefits of recycling.
Use this website to find celebratory events happening across the U.S. When I entered the code for East Lansing, Michigan (the home of Great Lakes Echo), several events came up. For instance, in Ann Arbor, Mich., University of Michigan Recycling will host a tour of the facility for faculty, students and staff. The Kellogg Corporate Headquarters in Battle Creek, Mich. is hosting different events all week from Nov. 15 to 19.
Try the site out. Perhaps you have a few extra hours today to check out one of the events happening in your area. If you don’t, maybe you could celebrate in your own way at home by simply remembering to toss tonight’s packing from dinner into a recycle bin.
