Global Recycling Day is March 18th

Most of us are familiar with the importance of conserving our natural resources. Daily we make choices to reduce, reuse, repurpose and/or recycle. If you have recently moved here from another state/country you may be surprised by our recycling practices. Recycling and composting are an essential and required service for all Seattle residents and businesses. Still we can do better!

The Global Recycling Foundation is pleased to announce the theme of Global Recycling Day 2024 as #RecyclingHeroes. This will recognise the people, places and activities that showcase what an important role recycling plays in contributing to an environmentally stable planet and a greener future which will benefit all. Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognise, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet. It is a day for the world to come together and put the planet first.

Sustainable Ballard has many projects that recycle and repurpose all sorts of items. Our members are passionate about their community and the planet. We would love to hear more about the extra steps you take(small or large) to steward our planet. Also, we would love to see photos of items you have repurposed. Let’s get inspired together and continue to move towards greater sustainability in our Ballard community and beyond! Please Email your photos/tips/inspirations here or share with us on social media Insta or Facebook.
