ISRI Releases New Additions to Video Campaign Promoting Value of Recycled Commodities
At its Annual Convention and Exposition held last month in Vancouver, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) released two new videos aimed at providing the public more information on the value and impact of the recycling industry. The videos, focused on plastics and tire recycling, represent the fourth and fifth in a series of educational videos highlighting different commodities.
“These videos showcase many of the great accomplishments of the plastics and tire segments of the recycling industry,” said Robin Wiener, president of ISRI. “These videos, along with the entire series, draw attention to and help educate the public on the many environmental, economic, and energy-saving benefits recycling offers. As the Voice of the Recycling Industry, ISRI will continue to make a point of offering new tools and resources to our members and the communities they serve.”
The plastics and tire videos bring to life each commodity's environmental and economic impact citing numerous statistics and industry facts. The videos also describe the recycling process for each commodity in easy to understand terms. ISRI and its members will use these videos as tools to educate national and community stakeholders, from legislators to school children.
The first three videos of the series were released in Fall 2014, include one highlighting the overall impact of the recycling industry on society, and one each on paper recycling and ferrous metals recycling. Videos detailing the benefits of other recycled commodities are scheduled to be released later this year.
