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)!

Here's How it Works

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!
