Everyone can take part in recycling!

Everyone can take part in recycling, yes, even us pups can lend a paw!

Ever wonder where all that stuff goes that we put in the trash? Landfills, yes landfills; to work for hundreds of years to biodegrade, while contaminating our water and our air.

The cool thing is we can reduce the amount of 'garbage' in our landfills, and we can utilize much of our waste materials for reuse as other cool items - even dog toys, dog clothing, and more pup products!

Recycling involves gathering up items that can be utilized and processed into new materials and products. By recycling, we can prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce the amount of contributions to our landfills, reduce air and water pollution, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

To learn more about recycling, and to find recycling centers for various waste materials in your community, check out Earth911! And remember - the 3 R's rule! First reduce, then reuse, then recycle!

So what are you waiting for? Teach your pup to recycle!
