Recycle Ring is a global project with one goal:
Equip every garbage can in the world with a
recycling option.

- Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles / hr

- Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion
plastic water bottles every year*

- Nearly eight out of every 10 bottles
will end up in a landfill*

- Recycling a single plastic bottle can
conserve enough energy to light a 60-watt
light bulb for up to six hours*
