Every year people in the United States throw out 250 million tons of solid waste each year. A lot of that waste ends up in landfills or worse, polluting the waterways of America. But this is a largely preventable problem if Americans put more effort into recycling everything they can. America Recycles Day is a holiday dedicated to spreading the word about the importance of recycling and making sure everyone knows what can be recycled and what can’t. This is a day to focus on making the world a better place to live in for all the generations to come. Celebrate this holiday by pledging to recycle more, not just on this day but everyday from now on.
