Second Activation in National Recycling Initiative Collects More Than 12,000 Bottles
From August 3-5, 2012, Seattlites participated in The Great Recycle, Honest Tea’s national recycling initiative. People were invited to visit the 30-foot blue inflatable recycling bin and redeem plastic bottles for items such as reusable bags, t-shirts, free bottles of Honest Tea, and mountain bikes.
On Friday and Saturday, August 3 & 4, the 30-foot blue recycling bin was set up in Seattle Center near International Fountain. On Sunday, August 5 the bin moved to CenturyLink Field prior to the Seattle Sounders match. Thousands of free bottles of Honest Tea were given out, and 15 people recycled more than 200 beverage containers each–enough bottles to receive a certificate for a free mountain bike.
The Great Recycle will next appear in Rochester, NY at the Greentopia Festival on September 15 & 16.
