Green Guilt is Up!
Green guilt among Americans has more than doubled since 2009, according to a Call2Recycle survey released earlier this year.
“We see this as a positive. Whether due to the recovering economy or for other reasons, consumers are stimulated to think about the proper disposal of old electronics and conscious of the impact today’s actions have on the state of our planet,” said Carl Smith, CEO and president of Call2Recycle.
Call2Recycle is the only no-cost rechargeable battery and cell phone collection program in North America, and is committed to keeping batteries out of the waste stream. Call2Recycle works with national retailers and businesses across the country to provide over 30,000 collection sites throughout the U.S. and Canada.
