Why Recycle? 

One of the most important things we can do to reduce our environmental impact is recycle. Recycling reduces greenhouse gas emissions, conserves energy, prevents waste from going to landfills or being incinerated, and conserves our planet’s limited resources. It's a simple and effective way to help make our world a more sustainable place.

 The Importance of Supply Chains 

There are many recycle chains out there, but not all of them are created equal. To be truly effective, a recycle chain must be able to recycle post-consumer plastics. This type of plastic has been used by consumers and can no longer be used for its original purpose. However, it still has value and can be recycled into new products.

Sadly, many recycle chains are not set up to recycle post-consumer plastics. This means that these plastics often end up in landfill where they release harmful greenhouse gases as they break down. This is why it's so important to choose a recycle chain that is able to recycle this type of plastic. By doing so, we can help to make a real difference in the fight against climate change.

As we all know, the recycle bin is not the end-all be-all solution to sustainability. In order for recycling to be effective, there needs to be a whole system in place that can recycle materials back into usable products. This includes everything from sorting materials at the household level to having the infrastructure in place to recycle post-consumer plastic.

Companies Are Understanding the Need for Change

Fortunately, there are many companies and organizations working hard to make recycling more effective. By investing in the right infrastructure and technologies, we can make a huge dent in our carbon footprint. And, as an added bonus, recycling can also save us money in the long run by conserving our limited resources. So let's all do our part to make recycling more effective!

The recycle, reduce, and reuse mantra has been around for generations, but it's more important than ever to recycle in order to achieve climate and economic sustainability. It's something we absolutely live by here at Horizon! Recycling plastic instead of creating products from virgin plastic is much less carbon intensive. In fact, recycling just one ton of post-consumer plastic saves around 3.8 tons of carbon! We can't recycle our way out of the climate crisis, but every little bit helps. So let's do our part to make the world a little bit greener - recycle those plastics!
