Global Recycling Day is an annual event, created in 2018 to help recognise and celebrate the important part that recycling plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future for our planet. This year it will take place on 18th March 2019, with a theme of ‘recycling into the future.’
Global Recycling Day brings countries and individuals together on a two-part mission.
- To bring recycling to the forefront for world leaders and,
- To invite people across the globe to think resource, not waste, when it comes to the goods we use every day.
Climate change is the major, overriding environmental issue of our time and collaboratively, we have to take urgent action.
Recycling (whether at work or at home) saves more CO2 emissions each year than those generated by the entire aviation industry, while simultaneously protecting the Earth’s valuable natural resources.
By combining as many voices and efforts as possible on a single day, the aim is simple: to drive awareness and to push the urgent need to recycle more effectively around the world.
Our planet needs our support!
