America Recycles Day is November 15

November 15 is America Recycles Day, a day when Americans across the country join together to encourage diverting materials from the waste stream through recycling efforts. Click the link above to find an event near you.

What do we mean when we say we recycle? What are the environmental and economic dimensions of recycling? What does it mean to say a recycling program works? I try to address these questions in my book Cash for Your Trash: Scrap Recycling in America, and in my teaching. It’s a question Pratt Institute undergraduates can consider next semester in SUST 201 The Sustainable Core Mondays 2-4:50pm. Talk to your academic adviser about how the course may fit into your schedule.
