Benefits of recycling go beyond the environment
November 8, 2021
This National Recycling Week, Planet Ark is inviting you to celebrate YOUR way. What small but meaningful change can you make that will mean a world of difference for our planet?
We’ve come a long way in the 25 years since National Recycling Week began. Recycling is now becoming second nature for many of us, with over 80% of Australians actively taking steps to reduce their waste – but there is always more that we can do. An important part of this is switching to readily recyclable packaging options that can be processed through existing collection systems, and Detpak has been working with brands around the world to support this move.
How much do you know about the difference you make every time you choose recyclable packaging?
Here, we take a look at just some of the environmental, economic and social benefits of recycling.
