Webinar: Recycling Solutions Summit

February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The webinar: Recycling Solutions Summit will take place on February 15th, 2018 online. Recycling is at a crossroads and it’s time we make progress. Together we can make recycling thrive in California and across the U.S. So let’s recycle right!

Recycling, one of the most important actions we all can do to protect our existence on the planet, is in crisis and recycling plants are shutting down. In the state of California alone, more than 450 recycling plants have shut down recently. Thousands of cargo containers filled with U.S. recycling that were once ready to sell to China are now sitting idly and are likely going to be sent to the landfill.
One of the primary reasons that U.S. recycling is in a crisis is because people are often throwing garbage in recycling bins as a result of confusion, apathy or even skepticism about recycling. The millions of tons of garbage thrown in recycling bins are too expensive to sort out and remove, therefore making processing of recycling cost-prohibitive.

There is absolutely no greater action people can do to simultaneously: improve the environment, conserve natural resources, mitigate climate change, prevent waste from going into waterways and oceans, increase closed-loop manufacturing, create jobs and help the economy … than recycling.  But unfortunately recycling in California and across the U.S. is in a crisis.  In the last 18 months, in California alone, more than 450 recycling processing plants have shut down.

Join the Recycling Solutions Summit webinar to be a part of the solution to improve recycling performance in California.  Learn about a proven nonprofit solution which is fixing recycling with consistent and simplified messaging to create greater engagement and better recycling. This simple solution can help recycling grow and thrive in California and across America. The Summit will give you insight into the current crisis with recycling and what’s being done to fix it. We will introduce you to a simple nonprofit national solution that is making it easier for people to begin to recycle more and recycle right, wherever they might be. The solution has been implemented in settings ranging from the Super Bowl and national parks to major corporations, airports, cities, states, households, schools, etc. And the results are dramatic.
