This year, November 15 was a huge success. For all of those who are wondering why that date is so special, it’s because for the past 14 years, November 15 has signified America Recycles Day. It’s a day that brings communities across the country together to raise awareness, increase commitment and motivate everyone to recycle. Although the day falls on only one of 365, big name sponsors such as Keep America Beautiful, Johnson & Johnson, LG, PepsiCo and others, support the effort to make recycling a year-long, life-long commitment.
As a refinishing and refurnishing company, we realize the importance of recycling. At many of our work sites, we’re faced with the task of making sure that old televisions and unusable woods are disposed of responsibly. That’s why we follow a strict no-landfill policy for the electrical components we deal with as part of our Television Recycling Program in conjunction with our Armoire Conversion Program. Our recycling and refurbishing tactics can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 95 percent compared to buying new.
Events such as America Recycles, as well as company programs such as our own, prove that every little step brings us closer to a better, healthier environment.
