The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about drastic changes to our daily lives. The share of products consumed, used and disposed of at home has grown – highlighting the need for sustainable recycling solutions.
Last month, the Maryland beverage industry marked its one-year anniversary of the Every Bottle Back initiative, an unprecedented partnership with World Wildlife Fund, The Recycling Partnership and Closed Loop Partners to upgrade and modernize recycling infrastructure while helping consumers with ways to recycle better.
This week marks the start of America Recycles Week, a time to celebrate the positive impact of community recycling and how we can all come together to advance innovative solutions to build a more circular economy and protect our environment.
As Maryland beverage manufacturers and bottlers, we’re proud of our industry’s leadership and look forward to building on our commitment to a safe and sustainable environment for generations to come.
