As the nation braces for another round of unusually chilly weather and cold fronts, 1-800-Recycling.com, an interactive nationwide website dedicated to enhancing and democratizing the consumer recycling experience, has published an article on its blog providing tips on how to dress warmer and live greener at the same time.
The article, titled “How to Dress Green When the Ground is Covered in White” (http://1800recycling.com/2010/01/dress-green-ground-covered-white/), identifies specific brands and clothing items that are environmentally friendly. The piece was written by 1-800-Recycling writer Lauren Kelley, who provides live links to where her recommendations can be purchased.
The article even provides a link to clothing recycling locations for those who want to get rid of old clothes.
“1-800-Recycling.com was designed to help people achieve their recycling goals and live greener lifestyles overall,” said John S. Shegerian, Chairman and CEO of Electronic Recyclers International (ERI), the nation’s leading recycler of electronics and e-waste, and parent company of 1-800-Recycling.com. “In many parts of the country right now we’re experiencing extremely cold weather. It can be tempting to rush out to the local megastore and purchase warm coats, boots and other gear, but as Lauren Kelley’s article points out, a few moments of extra consideration can land you with great, warm clothes, while leaving less of a negative impact on our planet. One of our sayings is that Green is Good. It can be warm too!”
