The Best America Recycles Day Promotional Products and Giveaways
America Recycles Day, a program to Keep America Beautiful, is a nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. America Recycles Day is held annually on November 15, with events promoting recycling held across the country. This year Keep America Beautiful is asking Americans to pledge the following:
Learn. I will find out what materials are collected for recycling in my community
Act. Within the next month, I will reduce the amount of waste I produce; I will recycle more; and I will buy products made with recycled content
Share. In the next month, I will encourage one family member or one friend to take the #BeRecycled pledge.
Whether you represent a government public waste department, non-profit organization, school or sustainable business participating in America Recycles Day, Eco Promotional Products has hundreds of recycled promotional products to fit any budget. Make your event and your recycling message one to be remembered by giving away America Recycles Day promotional products, customized with your eco message.
Choosing products made from recycled content supports the recycling industry. Currently, there is a recycling crisis in America and if there is no market for recycled products, there is no market for recycling. Recycled promotional products are made from a variety of recycled materials including circuit boards, tires, plastic disposable water bottles, glass, paper, aluminum and other post-consumer recycled materials.
Approximately 2.5 million plastic bottles enter landfills every hour in the United States and comprise close to 50% of all recyclable waste. America Recycles Day promotional products made from recycled plastic bottles are attention-getting and get people talking. Products made from RPET also conserve resources such as water and energy and ease the strain on landfills. In additional to plastic water bottles, plastic bags are one of the most common pieces of litter. Choosing a promotional bag made from 100% recycled PET supports the recycling market and encourages recipients to say no to plastic bags. Event workers and volunteers need eco apparel for America Recycles Day events. Choose t-shirts made from 50% recycled P.E.T/50% cotton. Each t-shirt contains approximately five recycled plastic bottles.
Other huge sources of litter are fast food containers and cups. According to Keep America Beautiful, the top five most common forms of litter are cigarette butts, paper, food wrappers, confections and napkins/tissues. Reusable food storage containers, reusable straws, reusable utensil sets and reusable drinkware are all ideal America Recycles Day giveaways.
For America Recycles Day events geared towards children, recycled bookmarks to be colored and then planted is sure to be a hit. Bookmarks have an "I love to recycle" message that can be colored and then the recipient will also be able to remove the seed paper recycle logo, soak in water, plant and grow wildflowers, herbs, or vegetables. It's an activity, it's a project, and it's a long-lasting bookmark. Kids will also love eco-friendly, recycled promotional products such as pencils, notebooks and sunglasses, all made from recycled content.
Recycled promotional products don’t have to be expensive which makes it easy to choose eco-friendly promotional products. For eco promotional campaigns with small budgets or high volumes, recycled promotional products under $1 include chip clips, Frisbees, pins and buttons, magnets, promotional drinking cups, sticky notes and much more.
No matter your budget, Eco Promotional Products will be happy to recommend the right promotional products for your 2018 America Recycles Day event.
