  • CalEPA's Big Earth Day Celebration

    We've been celebrating Earth Day for weeks now here at CalRecycle, along with our CalEPA partner groups. We all got together and held our big annual celebration yesterday at CalEPA's downtown Sacramento headquarters. We even had a few special guests, like Gov. Gavin Newsom. Little did he know he'd have to share the spotlight with Recycle Rex, the Bag Monster, Queen Green, and a few other stately dignitaries. Take a look at the fun we had!

  • Millennials--It's Your World, We Just Live in It

    Hey Millennials, no pressure, but it’s pretty much up to you to save the planet! It’s a big job, but fortunately, you’re sharp and energetic—you’re up to the task, right?

    Here are some tips. Once your mom drops her phone one too many times, or your dad’s laptop won’t accept the newest operating system upgrade, be sure to recycle their electronics responsibly. Buy your hipster clothing at secondhand stores rather than paying top dollar for new imitations—you’ll be keeping textiles out of the landfill and preventing unnecessary pollution and energy use on new clothing production. And share your eco-tips on social media to increase your number of followers. Follow CalRecycle on Twitter and CalEPA on Instagram while you’re at it!

  • Happy Earth Day, Working Stiffs

    Some of us have great jobs—we get paid to protect the environment! Some of us might also have other types of great jobs, or not, but we wonder what we can do for Mother Earth while we’re working for the man.

    As part of CalRecycle’s Earth Day celebration, we’re offering the following tips for employees, including ordering a Recycling Starter Kit and reducing waste at work events. And when the weekend comes, be sure to participate in an Earth Day event near you.

    A Clean California Starts With Employees!
