WASHINGTON (April 22, 2015) — The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), in recognition of the 45th Earth Day today, is noting the crucial role recycling plays in helping preserve the global environment.
ISRI said it is joining individuals and organizations around the world today “in celebration of the earth and what can be done to preserve it.”
Earth Day started in 1970 and takes place annually on April 22 worldwide.
“Each year Earth Day provides us with an important reminder not only of the need to do our part to protect the earth, but also the positive impact the recycling industry has on the environment and energy savings,” said Robin Wiener, president of ISRI. “Together with our members, ISRI serves as an environmental steward to not only promote recycling at all levels, but also to educate future generations on the importance of recycling, and encourage manufacturers to design products with recycling and earth conservation in mind.”
