National Another Look Unlimited Day
If you’re like most people, you’ve likely already collected a bunch of stuff from the moment you finished spring cleaning to the moment that labor day has rolled around. A junk collection that will continue to grow until you take action and do something about it.
Fortunately, there’s a holiday that helps people deal with this ever-growing collection of garbage and this day is called National Another Look Unlimited Day. It’s a holiday that falls on the day after Labor Day in the U.S. On this day, people are encouraged to look through all of their “stuff” and see not only what needs to be tossed out, but also what can be recycled or donated to charities or friends.
Facts About American Garbage
We thought that taking a few moments to talk about how much trash the American household produces each year is a great addition to this holiday article, so let’s take a look at some stats, shall we?
- The average American produces over 1700+ pounds of garbage annually.
- American households produce three times the amount of garbage than the world average.
- Worldwide, there are 2.3-tons of municipal waste created annually.
Observing National Another Look Unlimited Day
National Another Look Unlimited Day is a holiday on which people are encouraged to not just throw all of the stuff they want to get rid of into a landfill, but to give it one last look to see if it could be repurposed in some way.
This might mean donating the items(s) to a charity, selling it online or through a yard sale, recycling it, or even making it into an art project. It’s also a good idea to think about all of the stuff that you buy through the year and think of ways you can reduce the amount of garbage you produce.
