Most people are concerned about the environment and want to do the right thing. In fact, many think they already are doing what they can by recycling ‘everything’. In the industry this is known as ‘wish-cycling’ and it is the number one contributor to a problem called contamination. Businesses and other workplaces can help their communities fight contamination by promoting greater recycling knowledge.
Local governments are embracing technology to inform and educate residents about recycling and engaged workplaces can help speed up this transition. Recycle Coach is a low-cost, high-impact app that makes residents’ lives easier and educates them about the broader issues facing recycling.
Workplaces like yours can help build recycling awareness and knowledge in your community by using our free tools to promote recycling at work. Becoming a workplace Supporter is free and it is easy to do. Simply tap the Work icon at the top of the Recycle Coach app and search for the name of your company or organization. Your workplace will be added to the list of workplace Supporters and you’ll have access to our Workplace Resource Center.
