October is recycle month.

This month our Recycle Collection is coming 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:
Check out our Instagram this month to see how Goat recycles, inspiring recycling projects around the world and recycling tips. Show us how you recycle using #goatgangrecycles and we will even will feature our favourites!

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