Each year billions of tons of the Earth’s natural resources go to waste, instead of being maintained for better use. Global Recycling Day is an opportunity for us to recognize how we can adopt a global approach to collecting, processing and using these resources for better while protecting our planet.
People often forget that recycling is not solely limited to plastic bottles and aluminium cans, it also involves keeping clothing out of landfills and repurposing them for greater uses. Did you know that 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year, and by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than there are fish? Also, it's not just plastic bags and bottles. It is plastic pollution. We are facing a waste crisis – it’s up to us as a collective to do something about it.
The past few decades have seen a considerable increase in interest in saving the planet, but above all else, a vital area of interest has been recycling used clothing and giving them new life! The great thing about being green is that it doesn't matter what you wear or where you get it from. With so many companies eager to reuse materials, instill green initiatives, and provide people with ways to repurpose their items – recycling has never been easier.
This year at Talize, we’re doing our part for Global Recycling Day by drawing awareness to the need for protecting the Earth and its precious resources. We’re also encouraging you to donate your gently used clothing in exchange for a 50% off coupon to use this weekend! Learn more
When you choose to repurpose, reuse or donate items, rather than discard of them, it not only helps the environment but also saves you money in the long run.
Global Recycling Day is a time for all of us to heed the message of renowned environmentalist and scientist Aldo Leopold, who famously said: "In wildness is the preservation of the world." Celebrate the Earth – get outside and make a difference!
Your contributions will support our efforts to reduce our collective carbon footprint and make the world a better place for incoming generations.
