America Recycles Day 2021

Yep, my calendar told me that today is America Recycles Day.

So what does that mean? Well, here’s a little blurb I found that explains it:

“About America Recycles Day

The Keep America Beautiful America Recycles Day is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Held on and around Nov. 15, America Recycles Day educates and encourages individuals on how to be more mindful of what they consume, where and how to properly recycle, and to pledge to recycle more and recycle right in their everyday lives.”  

Ok then! So today I want to share some ideas with you about some ways you can recycle things you might have otherwise thrown away into something that can be used again. Here are a few things we’ve had fun recycling at our house.

Some cardboard pieces found in a box of tea bags…

Turned into bookmarkers!

An egg carton…

Turned into a caterpillar!

Empty toilet paper rolls…

Turned into adorable snowmen!

A empty, washed milk bottle…

Turned into a bank for saving coins!

Repurposing an empty Ovaltine container…

Into a great place to store things!

Turn an empty Q-tip box into…

A super place to store Barbie doll shoes!

How about turning an empty oatmeal container…

Into a Special Treasures container!

I hope these ideas will spark some ideas of your own on ways you can reduce, reuse and recycle! Happy America Recycles Day 2021! 🙂
