Planet Ark is proud to present Global Recycling Day - 18 March 2018 - an initiative of the Bureau of International Recyclers.
Below are a range of simple actions you can take to support recycling.
Introducing the Seventh Resource
Global Recycling Day aims to change the mind-set of governments, businesses, communities and individuals around the world, to see recyclables as “resource – not waste.”
We all know the six major natural resources on the planet: water, air, coal, oil, natural gas and minerals. Now, recyclables have joined them, as the world’s Seventh Resource.
