Recycling All Around You! #Sponsored

Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water has come out with a new bottle that is made from 50% recycled plastic.  They would like to make it 100% however they need OUR help in getting there.

As of the writing of this post there is roughly about 30% of recycled plastic that gets recycled.  What’s up with that?

This past month I decided to observe the places around me to see if there were recycling options available, and what did I find?

Favorite Amusement Parks: Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm were very prominent with their recycling programs:

My own apartment complex also has an area designated in the parking garage designed specifically for recycling goods

I went to an outdoor festival “The Festival of Colors” at a local high school in Los Angeles, and signs of Recycle, Reduce, Reuse were all over the festival.

During work hours, I’d go into the backrooms of grocery stores and saw the recycling of cardboard and plastic.

And in some Los Angeles markets, there is a “no plastic bag” ban which allows its consumers to bring in their recycled and reusable bags for their shopping needs.

And there are a variety of recycling centers around the Los Angeles area for people to come in and recycle their cans and bottles.  The best part is that some money comes back from it.

But WE still have a long way to go.  Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water has created an interesting infographic that breaks it all down for us:

    We have a recycle bin outside our kitchen door. I empty it into a bigger recycling bin every few days. I try to buy recycled products too if the are not too expensive! I love all the examples you found!

      It was fun observing around LA this past month. And the times when I wasn’t looking was when recycling signs appeared right in front of my face. =)
