Plastic Water Bottles
About six years ago I initiated a recycling program at my place of employment. I work at a vacation resort where guests stay for a few days or a few weeks. Having so many people come and go I recognized an opportunity to make a difference in the amount of trash being hauled to the land fill. Bins and bags are now provided for guests to place aluminum cans, plastic bottles, glass and cardboard which is then separated and taken to a local recycling center. Two to three pick-up truck loads are collected every week. The largest portion of this ‘trash’ is plastic water bottles.
For Earth Day this year my maintenance team built a ten foot tall water bottle of recycled material to bring attention to the amount of plastic bottles that are used once and tossed away.
Recycling is not enough, we must Reduce
