recycled plastics


-- Quote of the Day -- 


If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.

Recycling Product News magazine reports that due to Canada’s increased recycling availability for plastics, they have seen a 15% increase in plastic packaging between 2009-2010. 

A total of 217 million kilograms of plastics were collected for recycling, or about 70% of the plastic packaging consumed in Canada. (bottles, tubs, containers, lids, buckets, etc).

Between 2009 and 2010, we saw an increase of 13% bottles, 36% increase in plastic bags and outer wrap – from households. While there was over 50% increase in plastic film and bags from the business sector.

    1. I'm so glad that you found the information so motivating. This is the kind of information we love to share - because it shows how the people on this planet really are moving toward a more sustainable, conscious society. It also shows how very powerful each individual is in driving the world in this direction.
      In appreciation,
