October is recycle month.

This month our Recycle Collection came out and we wanted to get you fired up about recycling as well!

The frustration:
Recycling is just better than using up new recourses. I think we can all agree on that. But why isn’t it done on a bigger scale?

The facts:
There are too many facts to sum up here. We’ll give you a few to think about:

  • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours — or the equivalent of a half a gallon of gasoline.
  • An aluminum can that is thrown away will still be a can 500 years from now!
  • If all newspapers (in the US) were recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year.
  • The amount of wood and paper that gets thrown away each year (in the US) is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
  • Plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1,000,000 sea creatures every year!
  • Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.
  • A modern glass bottle would take 4000 years or more to decompose — and even longer if it’s in the landfill.

The idea:
Through instagram we tried to inspire our goat gangsters by showing beautiful recycle initiatives. So now it’s up to you! Google your ass off and see what you can do.

The hope:
Getting more people to recycle saves energy, trees and animal lives.
