For 15 years, since 1997, eco-minded Americans have been observing America Recycles Day each November 15th through public awareness, community and individual efforts.
So, do it: Take the pledge.
Looking for a recycling or repurposing holiday project? Even if you weren't, why not try this fun DIY Christmas tree made out of a tomato cage? I came up with the idea for the project a couple of years ago when I went scavenging for stuff in my side yard (that gives you a mental picture of what my side yard looks like). I went for an unabashedly fake look, sort of Mad Men meets How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
I've since seen other versions of tomato cage holiday trees -- each one is somewhat different. And that's the idea or spirit of the project -- create what you like. The important thing is that you are making an effort to repurpose or reuse.
