About America Recycles Day
The Keep America Beautiful America Recycles Day is the only nationally-recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. Held on and around Nov. 15, America Recycles Day educates and encourages individuals on how to be more mindful of what they consume, where and how to properly recycle, and to pledge to recycle more and recycle right in their everyday lives.
Focusing on individual action, the 2020 America Recycles Day highlights the actions we can all take to collectively address the challenges facing our nation’s recycling system. Through ARD, Keep America Beautiful and its partners inspire communities and individuals to recognize the economic, environmental, and social benefits of recycling. Keep America Beautiful urges people to pledge to reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle in every aspect of their life. The #BeRecycled pledge is a promise to actively choose to live a recycled lifestyle by:
- Recycling at home, work, school and on the go;
- Buying products made with recycled content; and
- Educating and encouraging friends, family, and neighbors to take the #BeRecycled pledge
Aside from the #BeRecycled Pledge, people can be part of the recycling solution by participating or hosting their own America Recycles Day event. Events can be scheduled at any time during the fall leading into the official America Recycles Day celebration, Nov. 15. Keep America Beautiful encourages all participants and event organizers to follow state and local health guidelines pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sponsors of this year’s America Recycles Day include Title Sponsor Cox Enterprises, International Bottled Water Association (IBWA), and Michelob Ultra.

The Raspberryhigh, A DIY Vaporizer Project
Last Updated on 6th August 2020
After doing some browsing around the web, I ran across a cool new vaporizer project dubbed Raspberryhigh. The Raspberryhigh project aims to develop a Raspberry Pi powered vaporizer with online functionality, allowing for stat tracking and other cool features. Working on the project is a group of hobbyists whose mission statement claims
We believe that vaporization technology is stagnant and even regressive in these times. Our dream is to actualize a real-steel solution to a wide set of challenges involved in precision herbal vaporization, while bringing enthusiasts closer together with online integration, stat tracking, and an achievement system to truly take your session to the next level.
According to the project wiki (which is slightly out of date but should be updated soon), fellow DIY enthusiasts can build a Raspberryhigh prototype for about $200 in parts and material. Before trying to build your own, I recommend that you have some experience with hobbyist electronics, since the build procedure can get technical at times. The project also has a page that contains the programming code (C++) needed to operate some of the vaporizer’s features. Since the Raspberryhigh is still in its infancy, don’t expect any of the online integration to be ready for a little while.
I’m going to be keeping my eye on this project, and am excited to see how it will progress (and will be posting updates here on CBD Village!). According to some of the folks involved in the project, an alpha model is currently undergoing some test runs with promising results. We currently live an exciting era of vaporizer technology, and I think that the Raspberryhigh project has the potential to introduce some real game-changing features by adding in an online component. It would be really neat to be able to join a private “network” with some of my friends so that we could compare things like vape session time, average temperature, etc.
DIY enthusiasts can build a Raspberryhigh vaporizer prototype for about $200 in parts and material. It could be an amazingly unique vaporizer.
