I’m coming in just under the wire with this post. Earlier today a press release from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) arrived in my Inbox.
The topic? A reminder that today, November 15, is the 15th annual America Recycles Day. America Recycles Day is supported by a number of corporate sponsors. Whatever your opinion on corporate sponsorships, you'll have to agree that the idea of dedicating a day to raising awareness of the importance of recycling is a good one.
President Obama issued a proclamation and asked the nation to take “bold action to preserve our natural resources, strengthen our economy, and protect the bountiful landscapes we have been blessed with.”
The EPA renewed its commitment to helping Americans reduce wasted food by working with grocers, universities, stadiums and other venues through its Sustainable Materials Management Food Recovery Challenge.
Check out the EPA site for hints on the many ways consumers can Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Of particular use during this season of holiday feasting are the tips on reducing food waste at home.
Coincidentally, today I finally found a good home for the darkroom equipment we were storing in the attic. I was happy to learn that art students at ECA are still being schooled in the old ways.
Happy America Recycles Day!
