Recycling benefits the environment by diverting waste from landfills and stops the emission of greenhouse gases annually, creating healthier air and much cleaner waterways. We can also save energy used to produce new products from raw materials.
How can you recycle more?
Reduce plastic usage
Remember, it takes 1,000 years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill.
We can start by using recyclable glass bottles and jars in our homes.
Manage your waste at the source
It is essential to segregate wastes into wet and dry as it paves the way for its scientific treatment at the source itself. Effective waste segregation at homes and offices means easy recycling and lesser waste at the landfills, leading to cleaner and better environment and human health.
Use recycled products
A study estimated that recycling can reduce CO2 emissions by 5.5 to 6.02 gigaton.
