What's Going On Here?
It's in our own hands. That’s the theme of Recycling Week 2019, the annual celebration of recycling organised by WRAP, which is taking place this week between 23-29 September.
What Does This Mean?
After big Dave hit us with Blue Planet 2, 2018 was the year Britain opened its eyes to plastic pollution. After Greta inspired the world, 2019 is the year of the environmental activist. The campaign therefore calls on people to take direct action to rinse, crush, squash, sort and separate their recyclable items, with the aim of making the circular economy second nature for the UK government, businesses and residents.
With environmental concerns firmly at the top of the agenda, more than 80 organisations from across the UK are getting involved, from Tesco to Aldi, and John Lewis to H&M.
