Today marks the Global Recycling Day 2018.
Throughout the world this event "aims to change the mind-set of governments, businesses, communities and individuals around the world, to see recyclables as “resource – not waste”. We all know the six major natural resources on the planet: water, air, coal, oil, natural gas and minerals. Now, recyclables have joined them, as the world’s Seventh Resource."
Today, more than any other day, a lot can be done: get inspired by others and share your own best practices with your family, your neighbours and your community. Use #GlobalRecyclingDay on social media. Encourage your local government to increase efforts. Think of and maybe reconsider your consumption and waste management habits. Shake the hand of the team of your local Okihof and thank them warmly for what they do every day to support our environment.
