Recycling More Important than Ever this Earth Day to Provide Feedstock for New Products and Keep Recycling Supply Chain Healthy
Posted April 21, 2020 on

This year, celebrating Earth Day has an expanded meaning, as consumers realize that their act of recycling has a real impact, not only on the long-term health of the planet, but on the here and now, as recycling provides the much-needed feedstock to manufacture products needed every day. “As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, our world is in an unprecedented situation, yet we are seeing that recycling is more important than ever,” said Jason Pelz, Vice President of Recycling Projects for the Carton Council of North America. “We hope that everyone continues to see that recycling helps ensure the recycling supply chain keeps functioning, benefiting the environment and the economy all at once,” said Pelz.
