Why do we not recycle all the waste that we generate? On average, 1500 plastic bottles and cans are thrown away every single minute in Australia. Even though most plastic packaging and cans are recyclable, the question is how much is 'really' RECYCLED? How many people understand how recycling works? How many people have recycle bins in their bathrooms and toilets? Very few! My aim is to recycle every possible plastic waste I can and to encourage my friends, family, and neighbors to do so too. I understand how frustrating it is to remove peals from those old shampoo bottles and to remove all the product inside- but I also understand the earth NEEDS us to take action. So I will!
