Recycle Week is an annual initiative to encourage people to recycle more by demonstrating the positive benefits of recycling. Now in it's 15th year, Recycle Week 2018 runs from 24th - 30th September 2018.
This years' theme is "Recycling. We do. Because it Matters." The campaign will focus on plastic pollution and encourage people to recycle as much plastic as possible. There is so much more awareness around the problems caused by plastic in our environment and Recycle Week 2018 aims to capitalise on this.
Cutting Plastic Waste
An article in Let's Recycle quotes WRAP as saying:
Shockingly, 79% of all the plastic ever created in still in our environment. We are becoming a plastic planet but there is still time to turn things around if we act quickly. Consumers can do their bit by increasing recycling rates to ensure plastic waste doesn't end up in the environment
There are many ways to do this. Check out our blog A Lot of Bottle - Recycling Plastic Bottles for some hints & tips.
Brands and business can also support Recycle Week. Firstly, by promoting the initiative and helping to spread the word amongst your customers and users.
Secondly, it also means actually taking a good hard look at your own business practices to see where you can improve waste management, recycling rates and reviewing your business practices to ensure they're as eco-friendly as can be.
