America Recycles Day Encourages Americans to #BeRecycled Every Day
America Recycles Day, a Keep America Beautiful national initiative, takes place on and in the weeks leading into Nov. 15, and is designed to help communities spotlight their recycling efforts with thousands of local events focused on how and what to recycle.
In support of this year’s America Recycles Day, Keep America Beautiful launched the #BeRecycled Sweepstakes, inspiring participants to continuously live a recycled lifestyle.
The America Recycles Day #BeRecycled Sweepstakes can be accessed through the Keep America Beautiful Facebook page and does not require a Facebook login for entry – all that is required for entry is the participant’s name, email and zip code. A bonus entry will be rewarded to participants who share a unique URL with friends and family. The sweepstakes will close at 11:59:59 PM EDT on Nov. 18.
The Grand Prize will include a $1,000 gift card to hayneedle.com, a leading online home furnishings and décor retailer, which offers a wide selection of Green Living products among the world’s largest outdoor living selection, including many items constructed from recycled content. Second prize offers a pair of Trex planter boxes made from 95 percent recycled content and third prize is a $250 hayneedle.com gift card.
By taking the #BeRecycled Pledge, individuals commit to learn about recycling in their community; to consistently and correctly recycle; to reduce personal waste; and to buy products made from recycled content. Aside from the #BeRecycled Sweepstakes and Pledge, people can be part of the recycling solution by participating in a local America Recycles Day event or hosting their own event. Valuable tools and resources to plan, promote and host an event can be found on the America Recycles Day website.
Sponsors of this year’s initiative include Amcor, American Chemistry Council, ISRI and Northrop Grumman.
