Children are our future and the key to saving our planet. The Global Recycling Foundation has a fantastic new initiative, encouraging children to make better recycling practices and think with a green mind-set from an early age.
Ahead of Global Recycling Day on 18th March 2019, children are being asked to join a huge, worldwide drive to ensure we have a sustainable planet ahead.
The youth of today are the key pillars in making sure our planet has a bright future. With such an important message, schools, parents and any youth orientated clubs are being asked to encourage and share awareness of this movement.

There are hundreds and thousands of ways to make better recycling practices but here are just a few:
The 6th promise on the list is ‘Don’t forget other materials’!
This is something we strive to promote at every turn. There are so many things that can be recycled – not just plastic. But do you know how to recycle other items that you no longer want?
We know we can recycle our plastic, cans and newspapers but what about recycling your car too? Recycling your car drastically benefits our environment. When you do so, this cuts carbon emissions, saves energy, reduces pollutants into wildlife habitats and minimises landfill – helping us move towards a sustainable planet.
You can recycle your car with CarTakeBack UK. You will benefit our environment and fulfil the 6th promise! The CarTakeBack UK recycling centres safely remove all harmful materials from the vehicle, and then re-use or recycle the rest.
It’s not just cars that you can recycle, you can also recycle items such as:
Anyone can join in the worldwide celebrations!
