America Recycles Day: Interview with Allyson Wilson

November 15 is America Recycles DayWhile many people are diligent about recycling aluminum cans, paper and plastic bottles, some forget that there are a multitude of other plastic products that can be recycled.

According to EPA, recycling helps conserve natural resources, reduces waste, prevents pollution, saves energy, creates jobs—and sustains the environment for future generations.

Recycling is also good economically. An example, Americans generated an estimated $730 million in recycled plastic bottles in 2014!

Allyson Wilson is the director of the American Chemistry Council’s plastics division, and she leads the charge to help people reduce waste, recycle more and implement easy energy efficiency measures in their daily lives.

Wilson speaks with TheCelebrityCafe.com, and demonstrates how recycled products can be transformed into other useful, and sometimes beautiful items. She offers tips on how to recycle and educates on other items that may be recycled. Celebrate America Recycles Day today and everyday.
