The three cyclical arrows indicating ‘recycle’ have become all too familiar. We all have a dedicated bin in the house where we put away cardboard, paper, soda cans, glass bottles etc.; in public parks, separate receptacles are installed to encourage us to recycle on the go, and that recycle symbol appears on packaging to help us decide what can be recycled. Recycle is one of the 3Rs – reduce, reuse, recycle – that we are encouraged to practice from a very early age. The goal is to reduce what resources we take from the planet and reduce the waste we produce.
