April is Recycle Month and April 22nd is Earth Day. Less than 14% of the 86 million tons of plastics produced annually are actually recycled. Therefore, we are leaving 73.97 million tons of plastic to pollute our environment and overflow our landfills each year. We Can Do Better! Here are some tips to recycle: • Avoid single-use plastic items; instead utilize glass or paper • Glass products can be reused • Paper products are much friendlier for the environment #CityOfLasCrucesUtility Services #LasCrucesGreenChamberofCommerce #LasCrucesPublicSchools #IllegalDumpingPartnership #DoñaAnaCountyGovernmentCenter
