America Recycles Day is a key day of celebration around here. Our entire company participates in fun, community events happening in our 13 markets nationwide. It’s an opportunity for our employees, their friends and family to dress up in funny green mascot gear and get out into our neighborhoods. This is the day we remind folks to take the #Pledge2Recycle and share how important it is to donate and reuse gently used clothes, shoes, toys and household textiles.
If you’ve visited our dedicated America Recycles Day landing page you’ll notice the many sustainably minded retailers, property managers, schools, businesses and churches supporting this important message by hosting ATRS Clothing & Shoe Donation Bins. They make it easy and convenient for everyone to drop off items to donate and recycle all month http://atrscorp.com/events/pledge2recycle/ Through our passionate following on social media, we alert our communities about the campaign and remind them to start early and clean out closets to get ready for this date.
Our message for America Recycles Day is simple: out of season, unwanted clothes, shoes, toys and household textiles of all kinds are one of our last, most important renewable resources. By dropping them off into an ATRS Donation Bin throughout the month of November, each item gets a second life and brings joy to someone else in need. This one simple action creates cleaner, greener communities where we live, work and play.
You make it happen: Thanks to readers like you, the impact we see in our communities at America Recycles Day events is profound. Families, residents and city officials stop by our information tables around the country because they remember us from the year before, they look forward to taking fotos with our green mascots, they bring donations for reuse and recycling, help us spread the word and become advocates in their communities.
So take the #Pledge2Recycle by cleaning out your closets, packing up that clutter and donating gently used clothes, shoes, accessories, toys and household textiles today and everyday! Your closet, the planet and the charities we support will thank you.
