How does recycling your bottle create jobs?
Recycling plastic into pellets and new products takes 15 steps. For you, it’s just one!
Here’s how it works:
When you put a plastic bottle in the recycling cart, it requires a skilled workforce to turn that bottle into new products. Real people with real jobs depend on the voluntary action of recycling. The Your Bottle Means Jobs campaign has a call to action and conveys the message that when you recycle, you put people to work.
How can you help?
If each Carolina household recycled just two more plastic bottles a week, we could create 300 new jobs. Become involved in the Your Bottle Means Jobs campaign by pledging to recycle two or more bottles a week. Or become a sponsor!
