Last year, The Global Foundation of Recycling declared March 18th as the official Global Recycling Day. Today is a worldwide celebration to raise awareness and educate people on the impacts recycling has on our planet. Engaging people across the world to share ideas, and start the conversation will inspire solutions to a brighter and sustainable future.
According to WasteAdvantage Magazine, “Discussing the importance of a future-focused mindset, Ranjit Baxi, Founding President of the Global Recycling Foundation, said: ‘It is all too easy to take the world’s natural resources for granted, but they will eventually run out. It is imperative that people worldwide think resource not waste, but we need solutions to make this easier. To truly harness the power of recycling we must come together to find the most innovative solutions and ensure we use these to engage young people across the globe. The youth of today are our future, and we must ensure they develop a ‘resource, not waste’ mindset in to order to look forward to a sustainable future. Global Recycling Day 2019 will help achieve this through driving awareness, sparking debate and helping develop new solutions that ensure the world thinks resource not waste when it comes to recycling.’” (WasteAdvantage Magazine).
Through sponsorship, campaigns, stories, and social media, The Global Foundation aims to encourage innovators and entrepreneurs to develop new strategies for recycling practices.
