RB North America’s buzz around partnership drives recycling efforts, raises 5K for charity
The program offers convenient ways to dispose of hard-to-recycle waste from home, earning first place in the Corporate Social Responsibility Campaign category of Ragan’s PR Daily Awards. Ninety-one percent of plastic produced has not been recycled and 8 million metric tons of plastic waste are dumped into our oceans every year. Global health, hygiene and home company, RB North America, wanted to do its part to address this issue, with its Healthy You, Healthy Planet™ partnership with TerraCycle.
Florida town accidentally sells municipal water tower
Brooksville, a town of 8,500 residents is located 50 miles 80 kilometers north of Tampa. I dont know where the blame falls here, said Blake Bell, a city council member. A small town in Florida accidentally sold its water tower in a blundered real estate transaction. A businessman purchased a municipal building underneath the city of Brooksville’s water tower last April for USD 55,000 with the goal of converting it into a gym.
Why are you hoarding your old smartphones?
When will electronics recycling become a priority for consumers, government, and business? It needs to happen soon, given that if you piled the 5.3 billion old mobile devices currently in people’s homes on top of each other, you’d have a 31,000-mile-high tower — one eighth of the distance to the Moon. (Don’t) take me to the Moon – The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Forum, an nternational nonprofit, estimates 5.3 billion of the 16 billion mobile devices in use today will become e-waste this year. Assuming each phone is 9mm thick (iPhone 14 is 7.8mm), if you piled them together the pillar would be higher than the International Space Station’s orbit.
