How You Can Get Involved
Recycling plastics is something which has a profound effect in many different ways. It dramatically improves our environment in many ways from conserving energy to preserving natural resources which are dwindling every day. It also boosts our economy by providing additional labor and new avenues for companies interested in the recycled materials who may create new goods from them which stimulate business back up the chain for that good. Lastly, recycling is something which can bring a family or a community together and create a lasting feeling of accomplishment and a sense of reward for helping others and our earth.
There are many ways in which you can get involved. Below are a sample of some of the ways you, your family and community can support the plastic recycling process:
- Get Rewarded for Recycling: For many, the reward of recycling is in doing the task at hand and feeling a sense of happiness for doing a good deed. Let’s be honest though–it doesn’t heard to earn a real tangible reward in the process! There are a few organizations which offer rewards for recycling. RecycleBank is one in particular which City Recyclers feels has a great mission, process and offering for its users. Members can earn points which can be used on various goods and services. Specific events can also be created which can help to raise funds for schools in your local community. For more information, visit their site at www.recyclebank.com
- Do-it-yourself Reuse: Sometimes an even better option than recycling is to reuse old goods in new ways. This often involves very little effort and is more of a creative endeavor than a laborous one. There are many websites you can find very easily which can help you to find some cool, fun and unique ways to reuse your old goods. One such website which we have visited is Beauty Harmony Life which offers a great DIY article on 25 ways to reuse old goods.
- Like most things, it’s always a good idea to get in touch with an expert and the same is true for plastic recycling. City Recyclers offers many options for recycling depending upon your situation, location and overall goal. Looking for a great way to generate additional money to help support a school field trip or purchase some new equipment? City Recyclers can visit your school and help to facilitate the recycling process which will not only help the school create an event which the students can learn from but can also support your monetary goal as well.
