Join St. Louis Green, St. Louis County, Wal-Mart stores, and St. Louis' favorite mascots as we celebrate America Recycles Day on November 15.

America Recycles Day is a program of Keep America Beautiful, a nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States.

This year, St. Louis Green has partnered with St. Louis County, Wal-Mart Stores, and our city's team mascots for a fun morning dedicated to promoting recycling in St. Louis.

Mascots, including Rampage from the St. Louis Rams and Louie from the St. Louis Blues, will race through Kirkwood's Wal-Mart to find products that include recycled materials.  Whichever mascot wins will receive a prize that will go to the charity of their choice.

Attendees will also be entered to win special prizes, including a Steven Jackson autographed jersey and tickets to the Blue Man Group.

St. Louis Green and St. Louis County's "Recycling Becomes Me" program will also be present to help raise awareness about recycling in the St. Louis area.
