Happy Earth Day 2014Posted
Happy Earth Day from your friends at Penn Waste!
While today is a great day to bring awareness to all of the great green activities and strategies to sustain our planet, it is important to remember that you can do your part every day of the year.
One of the best ways to do your part every day is to recycle via your curbside recycling program. Are you recycling every last item you can? Take a moment to check your municipality’s requirements if you are not sure.
Aside from recycling, there are many other ways to do your part to positively impact the environment. Here are some tips:
- Use products made with recycled materials.
- Use energy-efficient light bulbs and rechargeable batteries.
- Shop with cloth bags.
- Reuse plastic bags, cups, containers, etc.
- Repair items instead of throwing them away.
- Compost your food and yard waste.
- And many more Green Tips.
