Keep PA Beautiful Encourages PA Schools To Participate In Keep America Beautiful’s Recycle-Bowl
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful is encouraging Pennsylvania schools to get their students involved in Keep America Beautiful’s Recycle-Bowl, the national competition designed to invigorate students in grades K-12 to participate in recycling.
The objectives of the competition include: new recycling programs established within schools, the increase of recycling rates in schools that currently recycle and the provision of teacher/student educational opportunities about recycling and waste reduction.
The Recycle-Bowl competition begins October 16 and runs through November 15-- America Recycles Day.
“The Recycle Bowl provides a means to introduce or expand recycling programs within our schools and encourages students to take responsibility to protect our natural resources by making recycling part of their way of life,” said Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “We are grateful to Keep America Beautiful for providing this resource to our local schools.”
More than 1,200 schools across the nation competed in the 2016 Recycle-Bowl.
Recyclables recovered during the competition totaled 2.2 million pounds, which prevented the release of 3,150 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent or reducing the annual emissions from 655 passenger cars.
