Recycled products generate invaluable resources, so it’s important to think about what we throw away – seeing opportunity, not waste. Today is Global Recycling Day, a day for the world to come together and put the planet first.
Of the earth’s natural resources, we tend to think of six as the most important – water, oil, natural gas, coal and minerals. Today, humanity can’t survive with them, but these resources are rapidly running out. We are carelessly using the earth’s natural resources without thinking about what will replace them, while billions of tons of waste pour into landfill sites every year.
The simple solution to this is recycling, ‘The Seventh Resource”, which can be used again and again.
Global Recycling Day has the goal to let the world understand that recycled resources generate valuable resources. The day falls on 18 March every year and aims to promote the vitality of recycling across the globe.
