     Tackling a big little problem
    “Plastics and microplastics are ubiquitous,” Hardesty says. “They’re in our waterways, they’re in our stormwater drains, they’re being shed by tires from cars, they’re being shed from carpet fibers in people’s homes.”

     Make room in landfills for non-recyclable waste

    Landfills are becoming increasingly overcrowded with garbage and recyclable items. Recycling is a must to keep this precious space strictly for the storage of waste that cannot be recycled. This concerns in particular the recycling of scrap metal, plastics, glass, and last but not least, paper, cardboard, and wood, easily recyclable materials that can be reused for various activities.

    IMPORTANT TO KNOW: glass should not be mixed with other recyclable materials as is prone to break easily, hence it contaminates them. To avoid this, you should use a different recycling bin for your glass.

    În general consideram că plasticul trebuie reciclat, însă există situații când plasticul trebuie aruncat. O metodă ușoară de a determina dacă plasticul aparține containerului de reciclare sau coșului de gunoi este folosind metoda „Testul Poke”. Dacă poți să-ți împingi degetul ușor prin el, atunci plasticul este prea moale pentru a fi reciclat.

    Pungile de cumpărături, pungile pentru sandvișuri sau foliile cu bule, de exemplu, toate au nevoie de o manipulare specifică si nu trebuie puse în coșul de reciclare.

    Știați că
    ***prin refolosirea fiecărei tone de haine, emisiile nocive de dioxid de carbon se reduc cu 3.6 tone
    ***industria modei provoacă 20% din risipa globală de apă și provoacă 10% din emisiile de dioxid de carbon din cauza utilizării masive de insecticide și pesticide în culturile de bumbac
    ***producerea unei perechi de blugi cere circa 11.000 de litri de apă

    The best way to get rid of used batteries without harming the environment is to collect them separately and look for the nearest collection point for used batteries and accumulators.

    It would be for the best that, when we're buying cleaning products, especially detergents which have in their composition active chemical agents that produce the foam, to choose natural chemical products, that are not so damaging for the environment.

    We must keep in mind that the efficiency of paper recycling decreases with its contamination. This means that most of the paper that has been stained can no longer be recycled, which is why so much emphasis is placed on selective recycling.
