Global Recycling Day takes place on 18th March 2023, and it’s a fantastic initiative to encourage more of us to play our part in protecting the world around us. Today we’re going to discover how you can get involved with this day and make more sustainable choices in the future to help our planet.
What is Global Recycling Day?
Global Recycling Day is celebrated each year on March 18th and aims to encourage everyone to look at what we do with our trash each day in a whole new way. There are many ways recycled materials can be used, which is something we are passionate about here at Decorator’s Notebook. This day was created back in 2018, and it works to offer individuals resources and information they need to secure the future of our planet. On this day, everyone can come together to put our world first and share unique ways to recycle.
Recycling works to protect the natural resources available to us today. Recycled materials help to save a whopping 700 million tonnes worth of CO2 emissions in a single year and this is only looking to increase year after year. By making ethical decisions in our everyday lives, we can help to play our part alongside the environment and companies working to create a more sustainable planet.
Ways You Can Get Involved in Global Recycling Day
There are many different ways which you can get involved in Global Recycling Day this year. Of course, it’s important to remember that recycling is something we can do every single day, and doesn’t just have to happen once a year. The little actions we take every day will help to offer future generations the best quality of life possible.
Make Ethical Shopping Decisions
When shopping for gifts or essential items for our homes, it’s important to think about opting for handmade and recycled goods. Our online store offers a range of recycled handmade gifts that you’ll not only feel proud to gift your loved ones, but will also offer you a way to stop relying on new materials. Almost everything you buy today could be purchased in a more sustainable way, so take a look through our site for inspiration when shopping for kitchen and home accessories in the future.
Use Separate Recycling Bins
The easiest way to get into the habit of recycling is to make this as easy as possible for everyone in your family. We offer a range of vibrant baskets and containers, which can be used to separate recyclables. Have these on hand in your kitchen, so that you can then transport them straight to your recycling bin. If you have younger children or teenagers at home, educate them about the importance of recycling and making ethical changes to their life. The sooner you all get into the habit of recycling, the easier it will become.
Global Recycling Day is a day to remind us all just how important recycling is in our everyday lives. Make sure you check out our site for more inspiration about purchasing recycled and handmade goods in the future. These little switches can make a huge difference to the world around us, and the sooner we all get onboard with recycling, the more we’ll protect our planet.
