Why this Matters
For My Organization
Recycling within your organization is a social norm that is expected by staff, customers, and citizens.
For New Orleans
People in the U.S. throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles an hour and it is one of the most disposable materials in the U.S. Making new plastic requires significant energy and takes a long time to degrade in a land fill. Much plastic which is made with harmful chemicals often does not make it to the landfill when thrown away, and instead is found in our rivers and oceans, killing millions of water animals. Because it is a reusable material, it is important to recycle.
