Global Recycling Day 2022

Friday 18th March 2022


Recycling plays an important part in saving resources and combating climate change, by saving over 700M tonnes in C02 emissions every year.But we’re still not doing enough to save the planet’s resources. Billions of tonnes of landfill waste are still being generated every year – it’s time to take action! 

We have an overabundance of a man-made resource: Plastic. 8B metric tonnes of plastic have been produced since the 1950s, generating 6.3B tonnes of plastic waste. Devastatingly, 91% of it is never recycled. 8M tonnes of plastic end up in our oceans every year, polluting the ocean and destroying marine life. — we’re estimated to ingest a credit card’s worth of microplastics every week. 

The theme of this year’s Global Recycling Day is #RecyclingHeros. These heroes surround us every day, from household names to the unsung heroes doing their part to preserve the planet – and this could be you!Your small change could make a big impact. Take a look at our recyclable label range and find the best sustainable alternative for you and your brand. Swapping those standard polyester labels for a recycled variant is the action we need.
