In today’s world recycling is one of the biggest buzz words. It seems like a no brainer. We take something old and give it a brand new life. We keep plastic out of the ocean and stop making new plastic. But, if it was so simple why don’t we have a huge plastic recycling industry?
We need a new relationship with water. According to the food and agriculture organizations, less than 5% of countries are living with more water today then they had 20 years ago. Nearly 1 out of 3 countries are facing a water crisis.
Recycling and Reusing products are not nearly as common in the US as it is in Europe mostly because it can be seen as a costly or time-consuming activity. When in reality being more environmentally conscious saves you a lot of money in the long run.
