Less than 20% of recyclable material is actually recycled, around the world. Later this week is Global Recycling Day and a good time to bring attention to the importance of recycling, the work currently being done, and what more can be accomplished together.
To be sustainable, we must meet our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs. This involves working toward a circular economy, where packaging gets recycled and doesn’t sit in a landfill. By optimizing the use of the planet’s resources, we might avoid the creation of waste altogether.
The cleaning products industry is committed to doing its part to help make this future a reality. You can help by choosing products that are recyclable and made from recycled materials. Then check out our Cleaning Products Recycling Guide so you know how to help ensure the container material can be remade and end up back on store shelves.
