“If it can’t be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled, or composted, then it should be restricted, redesigned, or removed from production.” ― Pete Seeger

This Friday, November 15th, is America Recycles Day. Originally founded in 1997, it was the Presidential Proclamation in 2004 of then-Present Bush that declared every November 15th America Recycles Day. Recycling and sustainability are at the heart of Alabama Chanin and this week we encourage all of our readers to remember the vital importance of recycling and the lasting effects it will have on our planet.
