Waste

If everything you buy becomes waste, where will we put it all?

  • Throwing something away means losing the chance to reuse materials and can contribute to methane (the most potent greenhouse gas) emissions from landfills.
  • Electronics in particular are only recycled at a rate of 15% globally.
  • Recycling appropriate materials and composting food waste reduces the impact of landfills as well as the demand on our natural resources to produce more materials.
  • Learn about recycling opportunities in your community and support a more resource-efficient Green Economy. GreenUp!
