Bird Watching is Going Green with Recycled Products

April 22 is the date designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009. It recognizes that the Earth and its ecosystems are our home and that it is necessary to promote harmony with nature and the Earth.

So in anticipation I thought I would highlight the Wild Birds Unlimited recycled bird feeders and houses that we offer. Traditionally cedar was the best way to go when you were choosing quality bird houses and feeders. Today people are going green with feeders and houses that are made from recycled milk jugs.

I am gradually switching all my feeders and houses to recycled plastic. People understand the importance of reusing available resources. We have a wide selection of feeders and houses that are constructed from up to 90% recycled plastic and made in the USA.

Why switch to recycled?
I’m personally switching because I like the looks, I like how easy they are to clean, I like that they last forever and I'm happy they are environmentally friendly.

Recycled products are strong, durable, and most come with a lifetime guarantee. The surface of these feeders is resistant to mold and mildew, making them safer for your birds and hassle-free to keep clean. Also, the densely compressed panels resist rain, wind and even snow, without having to re-stain or repair.

At Wild Birds Unlimited we believe recycled plastic is a great deal for you and Mother Earth.
