JOIN THE CAUSE TO RECYCLE RIGHT
Recycling is the No. 1 action we can take for the environment, the economy, and our future on this planet.
about the campaign
Inspired by Terracycle’s mission, Pivot has joined forces with Recycle Across America to create Recycle Right, a campaign focused on helping individuals, businesses, and communities improve recycling levels to create a more sustainable future. Recycle Across America has identified a simple solution to increase recycling levels in the U.S. — standardized labels on recycling bins, which make it easy for people to recycle more and recycle right. By increasing recycling levels, we can create jobs, save energy, and improve the health and well-being of our planet.
How Does Recycling Affect Our Oceans?
Recycle Right At Work
Order Standardized Labels
You recycle at home, but did you know less than 10% of businesses recycle? Expand your impact and get your office recycling right by implementing Recycle Across America’s standardized recycling labels, which have increased recycling levels by over 50% at some of the most notable organizations in the world. Organizations and schools can significantly decrease expenses by diverting more materials into recycling bins and out of landfill-bound trash cans.
Tips To Recycle Right

Never throw food or beverage in the recycling bin
Keep aluminimum foil, dishware, and plastic bags out of the recycling bin

Recycle Across America (RAA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which has developed the first and only society-wide standardized labeling system for recycling bins to help eliminate the public confusion surrounding recycling. RAA and the standardized labels have been identified as a world-changing solution by Ashoka Global Innovators for the Public and have been referred to as "... one of the top environmental fixes taking root today" by the New York Times. This initiative represents what can be accomplished when simple solutions are implemented making it easier for society to act on their good intentions.
