In November 1996, Planet Ark founded National Recycling Week to bring a national focus to the environmental benefits of recycling. Now in its 24th year, this established and highly regarded annual campaign continues to educate and stimulate behavior change, by:
- Promoting curbside, industrial and community recycling initiatives
- Giving people the tools to minimize waste and manage material resources responsibly at home, work and school.
Whether it’s hosting a swap party for friends, setting up a new workplace recycling system or just upping your knowledge, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to get involved. Be focused on developing engaging and positive environmental behavior changes to help everyone recycle and reduce waste.
