Each of us produces an average of about 2 kg of waste a day. The materials from which packaging is produced take many years to decompose, but they can be recycled. That way, instead of being dumped in a landfill and polluting the soil and water we drink, the materials can get a new life. Your shampoo bottle, for example, can become a flower pot and cheer you up every morning. All you need to do is sort the packages at home for recycling.
Sorting our garbage for recycling can be confusing. With so many types of materials, and bins in different colors, who on earth can remember what goes where? For all of you overwhelmed recyclers out there, we are going to explain what’s what.
