November 15 is America Recycles Day, a nationwide initiative by Keep America Beautiful.
Each year, thousands of event organizers work to raise consciousness about recycling and the impact on our environment. Every year this event focuses on certain types of recyclables that many may not be aware can be reused in some way.
The focus for 2015: Bathrooms, Bags and Gadgets.
This year, organizers want to spotlight the personal care items commonly found in bathrooms like haircare and mouthwash bottles, in addition to plastic bags from retail stores, dry cleaners, and electronics and gadgets.
There are several ways you can participate:
Pledge to recycle and show your support by taking a selfie with the hashtag #IWillRecycle. Pretty easy, right?
