Hi! I’m Recycle Rex, spokesdinosaur for CalRecycle. My message is simple: "Recycle, reduce, reuse, and close the loop." Recycling is one of the easiest and best things we can do for Planet Earth. By recycling and then buying recycled products for home, school and play, we can really make a difference.
