How can you help?
National Recycling Week aims to encourage Australians to better recycle. Planet Ark started the campaign in 1996. This year’s theme is ‘What Goes Around Comes Around’.
The focus is on giving resources a second life, consuming less, reducing the need for new resources, and of course, recycling!
How can you make a difference? Ask yourself these simple questions before your next purchase:
- Do I really need this?
- Can I borrow or rent this if I will only use it a few times?
- How long will it last?
- Can this be repaired or re-used?
- Can this be repurposed or recycled?
We work closely with states and territories to improve recycling. We also engage with business, industry and communities to reduce waste and conserve resources.
Better recycling practices help our communities, our beaches and our planet stay healthy.
Think about how you can improve your recycling practices this #nationalrecyclingweek.
