Honest Tea, an independent operating unit of The Coca-Cola Co., reported that it recycled 108,704 containers at its Great Recycle events, which took place throughout the country during Earth Month in April. This marks an increase of 212 percent from the amount collected at events during Earth Month 2013. During the course of the month, the Great Recycle tour covered the Washington, D.C., metro area, New York City, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, California and Missouri. One 30-foot-tall and six 12-foot-tall recycling bins were set up throughout the country at grocery stores, college campuses and environmental events. At each stop, recyclers were educated about the importance of recycling and rewarded for on-site exchanges of empty glass, plastic and aluminum containers.
