In support of Keep America Beautiful's Great American Cleanup(TM), the nation's largest annual community improvement program, Sam's Club(R) teamed up with Aquafina to encourage recycling with the "Return the Warmth" program. "Return the Warmth" challenged local communities and schools to recycle 80 million plastic (PET) bottles during the 2008 Great American Cleanup, which took place nationwide from March 1 through May 31. The actual results, 189 million recycled bottles, far exceeded that goal.
