Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover

We draw attention to the problems associated with the production of waste in Poland and abroad and show how by simply changing consumer habits, each of us can reduce the amount of waste they produce. The continuous increase in the amount of waste is one of the main environmental problems of the modern world. According to the studies conducted by European Environment Agency, the EU Member States annually produce about 1.3 billion tons of waste. A large part of them is packaging.
Rethink, Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover is a simple rule which promotes sustainable lifestyle, consumption of goods and waste treatment. The order of these words is not random. Greatest environmental benefits carry over-consumption reduction and reuse - that is, ending last as a product to be a waste. Finally, recycling helps to reduce the environmental impact associated with the acquisition of the product from raw materials and the aforementioned accumulation of waste.
