On Climate Actions: Building The Habit of Recycling
Cultivating new, more positive habits takes time, but they are usually worth the effort in the end. Building recycling habits is one of the simplest ways you can leave a more positive impact on the environment. The first step is learning why recycling matters, the more likely you will become passionate about recycling and think twice before you throw something out that could have been recycled.
Here are some tips on building a recycling habit;
- Separating your household waste has a significant and positive impact on the environment. It is as easy as using a plastic bin for non-recyclable household waste, and a durable plastic bag for plastics, glass, cans, paper etc.
- Make recycling as convenient as possible by using existing containers, rather than buying or building new ones to separate your recyclables.
- Encourage those around you to do the same
- Glass containers, bottles and jars, such as those used for food and beverages can be recycled.
Materials and wastes offer an often overlooked opportunity to improve an organization’s sustainability, prevent greenhouse gas emissions and reduce costs. Tracking your waste and recycling provides the key foundation for a successful waste reduction action.
