Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone National Park is the world’s first National Park, founded in 1872 to preserve the delicate ecosystem and wildlife in select regions of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. In 2011, Universal began working with Yellowstone to collect the plastic captured in the Park and to convert that plastic into certain carpet and synthetic turf backing systems. This cooperative effort reduces the number of bottles going into landfills, helps create US jobs, and aligns with the Park’s recycling goals. www.nps.gov/yell.
