Global Recycling Day will be held on March 18 every year, a day to change the mind-set of governments, businesses, communities and individuals around the world, to see recyclables as resource – not waste. There are six major natural resources on the planet: water, air, coal, oil, natural gas and minerals. Now, recyclables have joined them, as the world’s Seventh Resource. Without recycling, all our used and discarded fridges, plastic bottles, packing boxes, cars, cell phones and paper cups will contribute to the growing waste mountains, which are either incinerated or sent to landfill – never to be used again. Without recycling, we have no option but to continue stripping the earth of her finite virgin resources.
