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.


The good news is, purchasing products made from recycled materials narrows down the search considerably, and promotes a good use of resources! In fact, buying these products creates demand for the materials collected in curbside programs, and prevents those materials from ending up in landfills.


Benefits that are most commonly discussed concerning the manufacturing and purchasing of recycled products include:


  1. Reducing waste and pollution.
  2. Conserving landfill space.
  3. Saving money and creating jobs.
  4. Using less energy and fewer new resources.


We wish you all the best with your back-to-school shopping!

Recycling and composting diverted nearly 70 million tons of material away from landfills and incinerators in 2000, up from 34 million tons in 1990-doubling in just 10 years.
