People may not realize that this is actually a reality on our planet right now. This is where your “recycling” goes, this is where a huge portion of our trash is going. Enough is enough! That’s why we have devoted ourselves to create the technology to clean this up for good. We transform waste into renewable by-products such as clean fuels ♻️Check out the link in bio to see how 🐬🐋🐠🐙

Recycling works differently in every country. There are lots of areas where recycling is not even possible yet for a variety of reasons. There are countries, such as Switzerland 🇨🇭, Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 , Austria 🇦🇹 , South Korea 🇰🇷 and Germany 🇩🇪 , that are ahead of others and have enviable facilities that are able to recycle many kinds of materials. In some parts of the world, recycling is incentivised: citizens who recycle get small rewards for their efforts. In some communities, people are provided with different bins where they have to separate plastic, paper and glass litter. In other very populated areas such as London 🇬🇧, people are asked to throw all the recyclable objects and packaging in the same bin and they take care of sorting the materials at their facilities. Before assuming or believing what you read in some posts or articles, check with your local waste management organisations to make sure your recycling efforts are not wasted! #recycle #recycling #reuse #recycleplastic #recyclereuse #reducereuserecycle #greenlifestyle #helptheplanet #savetheplanet #gogreen #goplasticfree #ecofriendlylife #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlylifestyle #livesustainably #recycler #helptheplanet #helptheenvironment #sustainabilitywarrior #sustainabilityeducation #greeneducation #helpraiseawareness #recyclingmatters #reducewaste #reducecarbonfootprint #recyclingfacts #zerowaste #plasticfree #plasticpollution #plasticfreeliving

According to the Yale study, recycling rates are dropping or staying stagnant in the US because the general public is unsure of what can and cannot be recycled in an ever changing market. Join us at Green Drinks on Tuesday, May 14th at River Horse and learn about the state of Recycling in Utah. #recycleutah #recyclingfacts

🇮🇳 Did you know India has one of the highest #recycling rates in the world? 70% of PET bottles are recycled in India and made into other products, most commonly polyester fibres that can be used as textiles. They constitute roughly 900 kilotons of products that would have otherwise become waste. ⁣ ⁣ We work with amazing waste management cooperatives who are driving the recycling industry in India and creating a more sustainable future. You can support these organisations by going #PlasticNeutral today - offset your plastic footprint via our interactive calculator - link in bio ♻️ #beatplasticpollution

#fridayfacts ! At, BroadOaks, we recycle! Swipe to see our gaint heap of plastic bottles taken away for recycling. ________ Stats show that Nigeria generates more than 32 million tons of solid waste annually, out of which only 20-30% is collected. By not recycling, we ultimately harm our environment and that affects every one of us, our kids included. Using less disposable materials is also another way to do our part. For example, carry your Water bottles instead of constantly buying plastic bottled water. Use cloth bags that can be reused a lot of times instead of always buying plastic bags, etc. #broadoaksbritishschool at Abuja, Nigeria

Did you know that it takes a lot of water to make toilet paper? It takes over 40 thousand gallons to make on ton of traditional toilet paper (that's about 5000 rolls). In addition to being used to process the paper, water is used to cool the paper and other elements of the production line. It's significantly easier to process used paper into toilet paper and only takes about half as much water. Using less water is good - it means less energy is spent cleaning the used water. It also means less water is diverted from its natural flow. Using less water resources is another great reason why it's smart to choose toilet paper made from recycled paper. #themoreyouknow #conserve #recyclingfacts #elementalliving

FACT: The average American throws away 3.5 pounds of trash per day. The average American uses 650 lbs. of paper per year... Recycling a soda can saves 96 percent of the energy used to make a can from ore and produces 95 percent less air pollution and 97 percent less water pollution. #welovetheearth #spreadtheword #recyclingfacts #repost

This is one of the most useful posts I created for Swancy so I thought to share it here as well 😊 Think before you recycle because not all plastic types are widely recyclable or reusable.

Not all types of plastic are recyclable and not all of them are reusable. So when we recycle, we can’t simply chuck everything in the plastic recycling bin. Plastic codes can help us identify what to do with each type of plastic but most of us don’t know what they stand for. We have prepared this guide to help you understand what to do with each type of plastic. Pay extra attention to no. 7 as it often includes PLA, biodegradable plastic. Scroll right to learn more! P.S. we posted this a while ago but we thought it’s worth resharing it 😊 #zerowaste #zeroplastic #plasticfacts #plasticpollution #plasticfreeliving #sustainability #sustainableliving #sustainablelife #recycling #recycleplastic #reducereuserecycle #greenliving #greenlifestyle #greenlife #recyclingfacts #gogreen #goplasticfree #zerowasteliving #zerowaste #zeroplastic #plasticfree #greenlifestyle #ecofriendlyliving #sustainabilitywarrior #sustainabilityeducation #recyclingmatters #reducecarbonfootprint #lessplasticwaste #ecowarrior

Home to kp’s Head Office, busy #PaddingtonCentral serves hundreds of hungry workers every lunchtime with its local shops and cafés. ♻️ Lunchtime waste can be sorted into 2 bins, each marked accordingly with #recyclable or non-recyclable symbols. Keeping things simple for busy workers makes sense. But does the public know exactly what they can recycle? Judging by the looks of things, probably not… Fear of contaminating existing recycling could be contributing to the confusion. Can things be made clearer for people AND simple at the same time? Tell us your thoughts. #RubbishOnTheRun #RecycleLondon #Paddington #PaddingtonCentral at Paddington Central

Most of us assume we’ve done our part by separating our trash and placing our plastic in the correct recycling bin. What many people don’t know is that a significant percentage of that recycling is exported to Asia, where it will potentially be landfilled and eventually seep into our oceans. Between November 2017 and October 2018, the UK exported 105,000 tonnes of plastic to Malaysia, where there is a lack of recycling regulation and infrastructure cannot cope. So even though you might live far from the ocean, your trash can still make its way there. What can you do about it? Take steps to reduce your plastic consumption. Spread awareness of this crazy fact. Become a #reBalancer and support the communities that are trying to manage the Global Norths overflowing plastic waste.

♻️ ECO BINGO ♻️ HOW TO: Recycle . GIVEAWAY: Klean Kanteen Water Bottle PATTERN: Regular Bingo (5 in a Row) . Recycling can get complicated. The rules are different depending on where you live and what’s accepted isn’t even universal.

Today, I’d like you to delve deeper into the recycling rules in your city to make sure that you’re truly disposing of everything you can and in the most responsible way. . Here are a few universal recycling tips: . ♻️ Make sure your recyclables are clean and dry! A few wet and dirty items can make the whole batch unusable. . ♻️ Reduce the amount of recyclables you use in the first place. While recycling is AWESOME! It’s estimated that only 9% of recycled goods are actually recycled. This is based on user error or recycling plants not able to keep up with demand. . ♻️ If you’re required to put your recyclables in a plastic bag, break down cardboard boxes so you can fit as many as possible before needing to use another bag. . ————————— . To participate in Eco Bingo, screenshot the official board in our story highlights. Be sure to check out the rules while you’re there! .

🎵 Cans!

The answer is yes - aluminium can be recycled forever! During the recycling process, aluminium is melted down and reformed. The best thing about it is that aluminium doesn't lose quality during recycling, and the process can be repeated over and over again. It's been estimated that recycling aluminium saves around 95% of the energy needed to make the metal from raw materials. Aluminium is better than plastic when it comes to recyclability - plastic loses quality when processed and can't be recycled forever. Just remember to clean the aluminium containers or cans that you are about to throw in the recycling bin. #recycling #recycle #recyclingfacts #sustainability #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #sustainablelife #greenlife #greenlifestyle #greenliving #ecofriendly #ecofriendlylife #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlylifestyle #reducereuserecycle #livesustainably #recyclingtips #recycler #recyclealuminum #helptheplanet #helptheenvironment #sustainabilitywarrior #sustainabilityeducation #greeneducation #beaware #helpraiseawareness #recyclingmatters #reducewaste #reducecarbonfootprint

For people who are suffering from acne-prone skin, this facial wash works amazing!✨ But, what is not really amazing is the packaging😢 I know that your company provides #BBOB or #BringBackOurBottles program to raise environmental problem awareness to the customers. That’s really great! But, we all know where plastics will end at the very last of its life as they can only be “downcycled” for 1-2 times before going to landfill. . Please don’t get me wrong. I don’t think plastic is evil and I still believe recycling is a good alternative to keep useful material out of the landfill. But, I don’t like the facts that a lot of people (especially those who don’t know the dark side of recycling) will start to think and give comments like “It is okay to use plastics as long as we recycle them, right?”. Yeah, recycling is helpful but it WON’T BE ENOUGH. We really need to refuse plastics in the first place to let manufactures know that we want them to PRODUCE LESS. . I feel contradicted about this. But, this product is still the best alternative for me now and I can’t do much about it although I’m giving my best effort to reduce my plastic consumption. All I can do now is cutting down my usage from few drops into only one drop every time I wash my face. It turned out this 250ml bottle can last for 9 months (first buy: late May ‘18, second buy: early March ‘19). . Deeply inside, I DO really hope @thebodyshop will start to consider and switch to a better packaging alternative so I can continue using this amazing product!✨✨ ✨✨ ✨✨ ✨✨ ✨✨✨✨✨ We believe that you do have so much power to facilitate us, your consumers, to fight plastic pollution together🙌🏼

My mom told me a sad conversation she had with a friend about plastic vs glass. The friend claimed it is okay to use plastic bottles if you have a plan to recycle it. The sad fact is 77% of plastic bottles in South Africa are not recycled. Just because you put it in the recycle bin unfortunately does not guarantee it will be recycled! Rather rethink your purchases and choose reusable items instead #plasticbottlessuck #plasticisnotfantastic #plasticisntrecycled #rethinkplastic #rethinkuseofplastic #endwaste #stopusingplastic #reusablebottles #glassisbetter #recyclingfacts #plasticrecycling

This week, new evidence reveals another truth behind the UKs broken recycling sytem. An undercover investigation featured in the @guardian placed GPS trackers on British electronic equipment sent to recycling centres and found it ending up in developing African nations- who do not have the technology to process it. Instead, the equipment sits and leaks poisonous metals into soil and water. .

Not all kind of paper can be recycled. Types of paper that are not recyclable are coated and treated paper, paper with food waste, paper cups, paper napkins, and paper or magazine laminated with plastic. Shredded paper is not recyclable as fibres have been shortened too much. #recycling #recycle #recyclingfacts #sustainability #sustainableliving #sustainablelifestyle #sustainablelife #greenlife #greenlifestyle #greenliving #ecofriendly #ecofriendlylife #ecofriendlyliving #ecofriendlylifestyle #reducereuserecycle #livesustainably #recyclingtips #recycler #recycledfashion #helptheplanet #helptheenvironment #sustainabilitywarrior #sustainabilityeducation #greeneducation #beaware #helpraiseawareness #recyclingmatters #greenprint
