Recycling is promoted in a variety of ways in our community.
In 2018 we began using radio messages. Our local radio station CFAR is very supportive of non-profits like us.
At first, they made my ideas into a message and recorded it. More recently, I have been writing and recording them.
Here are a couple of my favourites.
This great message was written and recorded by CFAR staff.
“Humans consume one million plastic bottles every minute. Ninety-one per cent of these bottles will never be recycled.
The next time you think, “I could never make a difference,” remember ... You are one
in a million.
Every water bottle recycled saves energy, oil, water, electricity and space in landfills.
You cannot do all the good the world needs but the world needs all the good you can do.
Good planets are hard to find. Help protect ours ... Recycle. “
This one combines several of the one-liners used to promote recycling.
“Do you recycle? If not, why not.
Does it seem too hard? Or maybe you don’t think it is important.
Recycling makes a big difference in how much space and money is needed for landfills. It makes garbage useful again. It is a way you can care for the environment.
Try it. You will be surprised how easy it is. Everything on the list goes in one bag. No sorting required. Have it picked up at your home or drop it off at the Recycling Centre at 9 Timber Lane or the trailer by Canadian Tire.
