During extreme heat or out in the sun, we are always grabbing a bottle of cool and refreshing bottle of water or soda. Although we don’t really care about our famous plastic bottle, did you know what can one plastic bottle you recycle can do? .
We use around 15 million of plastic bottles in the United Kingdom and that’s a lot of waste! We sometimes complain about how much rubbish we have in United Kingdom but we are the cause and the solution. Plastic bottles are slowly filling our landfill but nearly half of this is being recycled today. Congratulate yourself for the effort, but you can do more to lessen our rubbish.
We have been recycling more than 20 times now since 2000 because of the different technologies available for recycling and hopefully all materials can be recycled 100%. Today we can get products such as fences, bags, flooring, fleeces and even recycled bottles from bottles. Try buying products from recycled materials so that they can produce more recycled products.
