Recycling, everything starts at home

Did you know that each spanish person generates halftone of garbage in a year?

Recycling is a thing we should all do at home without even thinking. It’s the best way to reduce air, water and land pollution.

Be responsible and use the 3 “RE” rule:
Reduce: buy long life products with less packaging
Reuse: Try to always find a new way to use an empty object
Recycle: Separate your garbage so it can be recycled without using new resources.


We are sure you already know it, we just refresh it:

Organic Garbage: organic compound
Non Organic Garbage: paper, glass, plastic, metal.

These are the reasons why recycling is important to all of us:
1. Helps to reduce air and water pollution
2. Generates jobs
3. For each ton of recycled paper, 5 trees are saved
4. Combats global warming by reducing pollution
5. We conserve our natural resources
6. Helping to reforest the planet
7. Extend the useful life of the materials
