Every year on Global Recycling Day we recognise the achievements of those outstanding individuals and organisations who have gone the extra mile to save the planet – now we want everyone to do more every year to make a collective contribution for the future of our environment.
Ranjit Baxi, Founding President of the Global Recycling Foundation, has issued three challenges as the world faces an unprecedented threat to our planet.
Ranjit Baxi said: “It is not enough to nominate and promote our heroes but to also ask ourselves the question, “What more can I do?“
“We can all do more individually and corporately to help restore and preserve the environment of our planet. The waste stream continues to grow at a frightening rate which we cannot just ignore or worse, pass on to future generations to handle. Let us all act responsibly and save ourselves for the Climate catastrophe!”
Mr Arnaud Brunet, Director General of Bureau of International Recycling – BIR – said: “Combating Climate crisis is a joint global endeavour with all of us acting together to reduce waste and promote Recycling by using the Seventh Resource helping to save millions of tons of CO2 emissions.“
The Global Recycling Foundation supports the promotion of recycling, and the recycling industry, across the world in order to highlight its vital role in preserving the future of the planet. It promotes Global Recycling Day as well as other educational programs, awareness projects and innovation initiatives which focus on the sustainable and inclusive development of recycling.
