Recycling and reducing waste

Recycling and waste reduction is an important aspect of tackling climate change


Recycling usually produces less carbon emissions than the creation on new items. Recycled items are used to create other items, with helps to reduce deforestation, reduce emission that result from products going to landfill.

Additionally, by recycling, you are reducing the need to extract new materials to create products, and therefore, associated emissions from this process are reduced.

However, as a society we must also reduce and reuse the products we consume.
