PENNSYLVANIA'S 'BUY RECYCLED' CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED AT THE FRANKLIN INSTITUTE

 PENNSYLVANIA'S 'BUY RECYCLED' CAMPAIGN
 LAUNCHED AT THE FRANKLIN INSTITUTE
 PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the nation's first "Buy Recycled" campaigns will be launched at The Franklin Institute Science Museum when Pennsylvania's "Buy Recycled" exhibit, developed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, debuts on Wednesday, Dec. 11, at 1 p.m.
 The exhibit will be officially opened by Lt. Gov. Mark S. Singel.
 "Each time Pennsylvanians buy recycled products, they leave the world cleaner for the next person," said Singel. "In Pennsylvania, recycled products and packaging are easy to find. The 'Buy Recycled' exhibit will help consumers identify recycled products. Each time we buy recycled, we make recycling work."
 "We are pleased to host the launch of Pennsylvania's 'Buy Recycled' statewide campaign, as it reinforces our strong commitment to environmental education," said Dr. James L. Powell, chief executive officer of The Franklin Institute. "In addition to the 'Buy Recycled' campaign, in February of 1992 we will present 'Greenhouse Earth,' the first hands-on science exhibit focusing on global warming."
 The "Buy Recycled" exhibit, a presentation of information about recycled products and packaging, educates consumers about environmentally safe products that can be purchased in supermarkets, toy stores, department stores and elsewhere. Several interactive games, including "Recycling Jeopardy" and "This Recycled House" are an integral part of the exhibit. After a three-month appearance at The Franklin Institute, the exhibit will travel to museums throughout Pennsylvania.
 Now in its third year of statewide recycling, Pennsylvania became the largest state in the nation to enact recycling when Gov. Robert P. Casey signed Act 191, The Municipal Waste Planning, Recycling and Waste Reduction Act in July of 1988.
