Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Author(s): Nicky Scott

Enviromental Issues

What do you do with your old mobile phone? Where can you take your old medicines? Which plastic is recyclable? What happens to the stuff you recycle? This easy-to-use guide has the answers to all your recycling questions. Use its A-Z listing of everyday household items to see how you can recycle most of your unwanted things, do your bit for the planet, and maybe make a bit of money while you're at it. Did you know that: Around 60 per cent of your rubbish can be recycled - but only 11 per cent is recycled (half is sent to landfill); landfill sites are running out; recycling a one-metre stack of newspaper saves one tree; it costs GBP332 million a year to clean up the litter on Britain's streets; and 150 million plastic carrier bags are used in the UK each week - they last up to 500 years in landfill. "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" is packed with ideas for cutting your consumption, reducing your rubbish, reusing, and recycling. It will also tell you where your old plastic goes to, what happens to your old glass jars, how they handle waste in other countries. "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" is an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to slim their bin and help stop the earth going to waste.
