Pledge to never, ever litter.

Not even if I think my litter is biodegradable; not even if there isn't a trash can handy.

Not even if nobody's watching, or my litter is something really, really small.

 

 

 

 

  • Recycling breaks down the package and turns it into something else. A recycled plastic container can be turned into a new package, a lawn chair, a carpet, or a comb. A recycled cardboard box can be turned into another carton, newspapers, shoe boxes, or egg cartons. A recycled glass bottle can be turned into new bottles, countertops, beads or bricks. Recycling and re-using materials also saves energy. The amount of energy saved by recycling a single plastic water bottle instead of creating a new one could power a 60-watt light bulb for 6 hours.
