Do you know someone who is a true champion for recycling? The Global Recycling Foundation is looking for adults, children, groups and organizations for its Recycling Heroes competition.

“Whether we are the humblest individual or the greatest leader, the responsible use of the materials around us, and the championing of recycled goods from the plastics in our home to the metals in our buildings, is a global concern,” said Ranjit Baxi, the foundation’s founding president. “By shining a light on unsung Recycling Heroes all over the world, the Global Recycling Foundation aims to show just how much impact individuals, communities and businesses can have.

Heroes will receive $1,000 each to contribute to their recycling initiative. Nominations can be made at Global Recycling Foundation until Monday, March 8.
