Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Your VinniBag can be turned into a garden hose to help keep our planet greenâ€¦
But even with these efforts, thereâ€™s still a long way to go. From 1980 â€“ 2005 there was a 60% increase in the solid waste produced in the US. Again, weâ€™re headed in the right direction, but the average American generates roughly 1600 pounds of garbage a year, which is amazing when you think about it. As of 2008, the United States recycles about 28% of its waste. In Europe, Austria is doing the best job in the EU in its recycling efforts with approximately 60% of its waste being recycled. The UK is estimated to recycle about 17.7%, and Ireland, Italy, Portugal and Luxembourg are similar. Greece trails a bit with only 10% of its waste being recycled and the remaining 90% going to the landfills. Most other countries fall somewhere in between, but more toward the low end.*
Products with a #3 recycle code require special handling and often end up in landfills. If your area does not have an active facility to process these materials, we have established a program to insure that our products help our environment rather than add to the planetâ€™s burden.
When your VinniBag gets tired, send it to us â€“ we will have it turned into a garden hose to help keep our planet green.
