Tag It Tuesday! America Recycles!

by on November 15, 2011


Today is America Recycles Day, a day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and buy recycled products.  To show that recycling isn’t a load of rubbish, today’s Tag It Tuesday challenge is to tag our records related to recycling.

Tag our digitized recycling records here.  Here are a few of our favorites -
