There have been efforts to celebrate recycling around the world with Global Recycling Day on March 18 and International Recycling Day on May 17.
Special kudos to Rio Muchacho in Ecuador and the town of Teotitlán del Valle, Mexico for showing in practice how recycling and reusing are part of daily life. To those who would ask, ‘Does it matter if I toss trash in the recyclables bin?’ the answer is ‘yes.’
We are fans of successful recycling programs in travel and tourism. Recycling at McCarran Airport in Las Vegas a few years ago equaled the weight of 4.5 Boeing 747s. Other examples, please!
Translating: International Recycling Day
Spanish: Día Mundial del Reciclaje
