Why do we give free standardized labels to K-12 schools?
One of the best places to help facilitate systemic change in the world is in K-12 schools. Young people are passionate about the planet, and with the use of standardized labels on school bins and throughout society, we are making it easier for the next generation to become lifelong proper recyclers.
Thanks to amazing corporate donors such as Kiehl's, Bank of America, Whole Foods, Sony, and others, as well as individual donors, we have been able to donate hundreds of thousands of free standardized labels to public schools. Because of these labels, schools are reporting that they have doubled their recycling levels -- and in some cases, the school districts are each saving approximately $200,000 in landfill fees per year (net savings)!
A donation to a school/school district entails:
100 standardized labels per school
a free downloadable copy of our school-specific recycling toolkit
access to an online webinar to share with teachers, students, and administrators
communication tools and Public Service Announcements to help communicate your recycling program
If you are a corporate hero that would like to provide standardized labels to a school or school district or if you are a school champion that would like to sign up your school/school district to receive free standardized labels, please fill out the appropriate forms below.
Thank you so much for joining the standardized label solution and helping the next generation recycle right!

Our recycling levels have doubled in the schools where we are using the standardized labels. We’re now beginning to use the labels in all of our schools throughout our district.
The standardized labels will help our kids – as well as our employees – quickly understand what can be put in the recycling bins around the schools.

Recycle Across America provides free standardized labels to K-12 schools throughout the U.S. Since using the standardized labels on our recycling bins, our recycling amounts have gone up so dramatically and the materials captured are so clean, that we saved approximately $200,000 in landfill fees in the first year since using the labels!
The GSNN would like to thank Recycle Across America for developing national standardized labels for recycling bins for schools. Your program is an essential element that will advance the national green and healthy school movement. Recycle Across America will assist all of our future generations to develop lifestyle habits that will ensure a sustainable world.
