Thinking Green | Reducing plastic in everyday living. Is your life a little too plastic? Would you like to slim down your bin?
Did you know that 7,150 fully recyclable plastic bags go to landfill in the country EVERY MINUTE? That’s almost half a million EVERY HOUR! So much everyday plastic can be avoided and so many unavoidable plastics like bread bags can be easily recycled in your area! Join Liz Kasell from REDcycle who will tell you how and more!
We would discuss "the pull through effect" that highlights how essential it is for the community and councils to be supportive of the end product to ensure the collection of plastic can both occur and grow. This looks at the value of waste, how community collected waste is transformed into everyday products that serve in being long lasting, low in maintenance and sustainable, We will also address " where does your waste go if it isn't being recycled and made into a product?".
