In the United States, every year 22 million tons of household recyclables go to landfills, become litter, and pollute our waters. While packaging plays a key role in keeping products safe and transportable, it too often is discarded when it could be used again. Recycling protects resources from depletion, allows communities to manage the amount of trash they have to handle, and protects the environment by saving water and greenhouse gases. In America, our capture rate of household recyclables is about 50 percent.
Those recyclables that escape translating to $1.8 billion lost in addition to the wasted water, and energy.
Recycling saves local money, creates jobs, and saves the environment. Here at Lithoprinting & Graphics we are dedicated to doing it right by Mother Nature. We recycle all we can to make the planet livable and keep it beautiful for generations to come.
