For some it can’t come soon enough. For others, it encroaches like the outer wall of a storm front. Either way, a new school year is just around the corner!


Growing up, one of the most exciting parts of the back-to-school season was shopping for school supplies. Well, it was exciting for some of us. Not necessarily for the one scouring the store for every last item on the supply checklist, while avoiding near cart collisions in the store’s highest traffic area.


With the hot and humid weather this summer, plastic water and soda bottles are pretty popular!


In fact, did you know that Americans use approximately 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour?!

The 4th of July is almost here! The holiday festivities will likely take you outside for fireworks, gathering with family and friends, and maybe even planning activities.


As you prepare for the weekend, how about thinking of ways to incorporate some green with the red, white, and blue?


It could be…it might be…it is!! It’s starting to feel a lot like summer folks! And that means it’s time to take out the invention that not only gives kids something to do while they’re out of school, but serves as an ingenious way to cool down on particularly hot days.


Have you guessed it? It’s a Slip and Slide! You may be wondering what a Slip and Slide has to do with recycling, and there’s a surprising connection. It just so happens that Slip and Slides and plastic Kiddie Pools are frequent contamination items in curbside recycling during the summer months.
