The best solution is to refuse single-use plastic items, then find the most appropriate way - reduce, reuse, recycle & manufacture new products - to manage what's left to avoid plastic pollution of our land and oceans.

Pennsylvania’s first Benefit Corporation, Close the Loop Company, is celebrating and raising awareness for America Recycles Day on November 15th by holding an open house with their strategic partner, Waste Not Technologies, LLC, located at 2189 Kunkletown Road in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania from 1pm-3pm on Friday, Nov 15th, for people interested in learning more about where their recycling plastic bottles go at the end of life, which is the beginning of a new life for products such as plastic fencing, livestock fence posts, parking lot bumpers, raised garden beds & landscape timbers.
On November 15th of each year, the nation celebrates America Recycles Day, a nationally recognized awareness day that encourages neighbors, colleagues, family and friends to pledge to recycle in their community.
“I hope ARD will inspire others to take action and take the pledge to promote and celebrate recycling in this country. The best solution is to refuse single-use plastic items, then find the most appropriate way - reduce, reuse, recycle & manufacture new products - to manage what's left to avoid plastic pollution of our land and oceans. By recycling, US jobs are created in collection, transportation, and manufacturing,” says Close the Loop founder and CEO, Rita Lacey.
Rita Lacey launched her online business, Close the Loop, in 2000 to help support small US manufacturers who make high quality products out of waste materials to help build a better world for future generations. To date, the leading online business has shipped over 7 million pounds of rubber mulch, 125,000+ pounds of plastic fencing, and continues to build the market for glass mulch and play sand made from post-consumer glass bottles. Lacey and her business is a prime example of the exponential possibilities that come from preserving the environment.
