Recycle Bank Eco-Footprint

Recyclebank  "... partners with cities and haulers to reward households for recycling. Households earn RecycleBank Points that can be used to shop at over 1,500 local and national businesses."

The process is Recycle, Redeem. Reward.  The rewards go beyond the points that can be used for shopping ... and include helping to lighten you eco-footprint.

" ... an eco-footprint really is a measure of how lightly - or un-lightly - we tread on the planet ... are determined through the amount of greenhouse gases produced, in units of carbon dioxide. ... "

" ... average American generates 4.5 lbs of garbage per day ... average American family generates approximately 2.5 tons of garbage a year ... Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to keep a 100-watt bulb burning for almost four hours or run your television for three hours ... Plastics require 100 to 400 years to break down in a landfill."
