11/15: America Recycles Day

Posted By on Tue, Nov 10, 2009 at 4:31 PM

A new buzz phrase in the sustainability movement is “zero waste.” What that means is recycle, recycle, recycle until ultimately nothing is cast aside and everything old finds a new use. It sounds pie-in-the-sky, but “green” lifestyle proponents are making giant strides toward such a sustainable world. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo (3900 Wildlife Way, 216.661.6500) is pitching in, joining in the national celebration of the 12th annual America Recycles Day, with the goal of encouraging people to “reduce, reuse and recycle.” They’ll help you get started, with information from groups that sponsor recycling programs and education, recycling businesses and manufacturers of recycled products, and artists who work with repurposed material that otherwise would end up in a dump somewhere. There’ll also be a collection of computers, ink and toner cartridges, aluminum cans, cell phones, newspapers and magazines, plus recycling-related games and crafts to get kids thinking about what happens to stuff after they throw it away. It all takes place from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and it’s all included in the zoo admission fee: $7 adults, $5 2-11. — Anastasia Pantsios
