April is Earth Month, so while we may put more focus on recycling this month, the reality is that recycling is important every day. The national recycling rate is just above 30% for beverage containers, and we’d like to help improve on that number. In 2012, Honest Tea debuted The Great Recycle, our national recycling initiative in-person, New York City’s Times Square and online. The event featured a 30-foot blue recycling bin and we invited people to trade in their plastic containers for items such as t-shirts, yoga mats, beverages, bicycles, and more. Since then, our bin has ventured on a journey across the country from Seattle to Rochester, West Palm Beach to Boston and Denver. Join us on this journey and swap your plastic containers for fun items! Look for our recycling bin to visit your city, and stay up to date with upcoming Great Recycle locations by following our Events Tab on Facebook. You’ll find our 30-foot bin, or 12-foot mini bin, popping up at events around the country, including:
April 16-18: Union Station, DC
April 19-22: Earth Day Dallas
April 20-22: Union Square, Union Square NYC
