♻️ One person CAN make a difference when it comes to recycling!♻️

Each piece you recycle - no matter how small - adds up. Take, for example, a single aluminum can - recycling just one can save enough energy to run a 14 watt CFL bulb for 20 hours, a computer for 3 hours, or a TV for 2 hours! Recycle a 6-pack and you've saved enough energy to run a computer for more than a day (27 hours). If you and 40 of your closest friends recycle just one 6-pack a month, you'll be saving enough energy to run a computer for a year.

Don't let perfect be the enemy of (or get in the way of doing) good. Each person - including YOU - makes a difference.

When it comes to recycling, misinformation and myth can make figuring out what is true NOW that much more difficult, so we are busting common #RecyclingMyths throughout the Recycle Right campaign! There is a myth that one person recycling doesn't make a difference - this is a recycling myth we'd like to see thrown in the trash!
