Our global recycling crisis is getting out of hand. Unfortunately, nobody wants to accept our recyclables, and it’s proving itself to be increasingly and ironically unsustainable from nation to nation.
In action, recycling is confusing and people don’t get clear information as to which material belongs to which bin.
Luckily we have alternatives, which is to reduce and reuse. Not as fashionable, not as convenient, but it works!
Reducing and reusing requires:
- More love to take care of our personal belongings
- More consciousness of our own lifestyles
Recycling is a system that makes people feel less guilty when we over-consume. It’s a system that needs drastic improvement, or a complete makeover, but we can’t waste our time and wait for it to happen—we’re too impatient for that.
