[INSERT NAME, TITLE AND ORGANIZATON, AS WELL AS CONTACT INFORMATION IN CASE THE NEWSPAPER HAS QUESTIONS] Campaign-Specific long (This would be ideal timed to the launch of the statewide campaign) To the Editor [INSERT NAME OF EDITOR IF KNOWN]: The state of Georgia recently unveiled a new campaign designed to increase recycling. Sound boring? Think recycling isnt that important? Think again. A recent waste audit conducted in Georgia revealed that 40 percent of what we throw out is recyclable. That 40 percent equates to a lot of waste and wasted money. Based on the average landfill fee, Georgians spend over $90 million to throw recyclable materials away. To help demonstrate the importance of recycling, [INSERT CITY/TOWN NAME] and the state is launching a new education campaign to demonstrate how easy recycling is and one that reinforces that there really is no good excuse for not being a diligent recycler, especially in a community like ours where recycling is so easy and so convenient!

If you dont know how or where to recycle, visit [INSERT LOCAL WEBSITE] to find out. Recycling conserves water, which we all care about in Georgia. If we recycled just half of the paper thrown away, we would save enough water for every person in the state to take 36 showers. I encourage everyone to step up their recycling. Lets make [INSERT CITY/TOWN NAME] a leader in recycling! [INSERT NAME, TITLE AND ORGANIZATON, AS WELL AS CONTACT INFORMATION IN CASE THE NEWSPAPER HAS QUESTIONS] Give Up the Excuse short (Ideal timed 2-4 weeks after campaign launch) To the Editor [INSERT NAME OF EDITOR IF KNOWN]: There are a million excuses why we cant recycle. Weve probably all heard or said some of them ourselves. For every excuse out there, such as it takes too much time or whats one can? I can show you 90 million reasons why it does matter. Last year, Georgia spent $90 million throwing recyclables in the landfills. Yes, 90 MILLION. And that doesnt even factor in the environmental impacts, which are astronomical. Is this the best we can do? I encourage everyone to step it up (recycling) and give it up (your excuses). We can do better. We have to.

Is this the best we can do? Georgia has the second largest market for recycled commodities in the entire country second only to California. Think about all of the industries in the state (carpet, paper, plastic, aluminum, etc.) that rely on recycled commodities. If we are trashing these materials, they arent working for us, are they? I encourage everyone to step it up (recycling) and give it up (your excuses). We can do better. We have to.

Its everywhere from the front page to the highway billboard. Even here in [INSERT CITY/TOWN NAME], we have green programs and initiatives such as INSERT SHORT DESCRIPTIONS. Yet, where the rubber meets the road (i.e., in the home), many often find an excuse not to do the simplest of things to help the environment: recycling. Recycling isnt new. And it may not be as hip as buying organic, installing CFL light bulbs or even driving a hybrid. You might think its already being done enough. However, a recent waste audit conducted in Georgia revealed that 40 percent of what Georgians throw out is recyclable. Thats a lot of excuses! Its not that we dont care. Well, most of us anyway. A statewide survey revealed recently that, for the most part, Georgia residents do care about the environment and agree they can make an impact through personal action. In fact, 97 percent of Georgians feel that recycling should be a high priority for their fellow residents and a whopping 84percent of Georgia residents have recycled something in the past 12 months. However, it is important to note that only 55 percent recycle always or often. Thanks to the efforts by many of our residents, there have been great strides, but theres still room for improvement. And all of those excuse makers? Well, they just weigh us down.
