We are in the news:

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Everyday 48,000,000 pounds of waste goes into oceans.

New reports indicate that the amount of waste has increased to 61,000,000 lbs/day since recycling has started to collapse.

AN OVERVIEW

FROM THE FOUNDER

THE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST VIDEO

Dear concerned people, businesses owners, municipalities, and elected officials, 

As you know, there is a serious waste and recycling crisis in the U.S. and globally.  You might be hearing that your recycling is going to the landfill or incinerator, or that your community's recycling program is shutting down because it's becoming too expensive to operate.  You might also be hearing devastating statistics about oceans and waterways being filled with trash and plastics.   

What you might not know, is that there are tremendous amounts of conflicts of interest in the recycling and packaging industry that profit more when waste increases and when recycling doesn't work, as seen in the compilation of media reports in the attached Conflicts of Interest video.

 

The good news is that we have a proven solution to fix recycling, which is now part of an effective legislation strategy crafted with other nonprofits, senators, and members of Congress to reduce waste.   Scroll down on the website to see THE PLAN and next steps that we can all take.   

In the meantime, make sure you text FIX IT to 40649 to ask your elected officials to be part of the solution to fix the waste and recycling crisis in your community, in our country, and globally.

Thank you for caring about the waste and recycling crisis  -- and most importantly, for doing something to fix it!

$1.37 MILLION

SAVED!!!

When Bank of America donated the standardized labels to the public K-12 school district in Orlando, FL (OCPS), the school district's recycling levels increased more than 90% and as a result, the school district has saved over $1.3 million dollars in trash hauling fees (net savings!)

The society-wide standardized waste signage from the nonprofit organization Recycle Across America, played a critical role in USBS achieving the first zero-waste Super Bowl.

 

We diverted over 91% of the materials from the Super Bowl game to be recycled or composted or reused. It was a great success and the standardized labels helped us reach that goal.

The National Parks provide unparalleled opportunities for visitors from across the globe to see our natural and cultural history come alive.  These same visitors expect the National Park Service to support comprehensive waste reduction and recycling programs.  

 

With the support of organizations like Recycle Across America, we can help our visitors recycle better by implementing standardized labeling on recycling containers, and in turn, help protect these parks unimpaired for future generations.

With more than 157 languages and dialects spoken, the Recycle Across America labels have made ‘recycling right’ universally understood for our students and staff. Since July of 2016, Orange County Public Schools has increased recycling by over 5,000 tons.

 

In addition, the recycling program saved the school district over $360,000 in trash hauling fees in the first school year (2016-2017), and over $1 million in expenditures during the second school year (2017-2018).
