Stop, right now -- and go clean out your car.
You read right. Just three minutes is all you need to properly dispose of all the wrappers, soda cans and plastic water bottles that are tumbling around in your floorboard.

Get it, now?
By thoughtfully disposing of these recyclable items, you’ll keep them out of our already clogged landfills.
Three minutes is all you need to make a difference.
Isn’t the planet worth three minutes of your time?
