Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognize and celebrate the importance recycling plays in preserving our resources and securing the future of our planet. It is day for the world to come together and put the planet first.
The mission of Global Recycling Day is simple – tell the world leaders that recycling is important and ask people to think recourse, not waste, when it comes to the goods around us.
Global Recycling Day is held on March 18th every year and was extremely successful as individuals and companies came together to drive awareness and push the urgency to recycle more effectively around the world.
Global Recycling Day 2019: Recycling Into the Future
After the successful launch of Global Recycling Day in 2018, the Global Recycling Foundation has announced the theme of 2019 as “Recycling Into the Future.” Global Recycling Day will focus on the power of youth, education, and innovation in ensuring a brighter future for the planet.
This initiative will work to get more young people engaged and aware of the importance of recycling. Furthermore, the initiative will work with businesses and entrepreneurs globally to share their innovation and ideas for better recycling practices.
How You Can Recycle Into the Future
At AmeriSouth recycling, we have made it our mission to help businesses find reliable recycling, equipment, repair, and consulting services. We are hyper focused on preserving our precious primary resources for the future of our planet. In fact, our natural resources are rapidly running out, and once they are gone, they’re gone forever. Consider this:
- In 2017, we used a year’s worth of resources in just seven months.
- The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations predicts that, by 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in regions with absolute water scarcity.
- Every year we dump 2.12 billion tons of waste
By reducing and reusing, we can significantly reduce the impact on our environment and preserve our natural resources although 91% of the plastic created isn’t recycled today. And, Americans only recycle 34 percent of all the waste they create according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
