Recycle sign

Posted by admin on February 1, 2009

Have you seen this sign before?

To the few of this website visitors which did not see this sign before and to the very few which not sure where its from, i will details this sign information once again. A global goal is to have this sign more and more, on as much products and on as much locations.

This is the recycling sign

The recycle sign tells us about the products we are buying and about the locations to recycle. If you see in the supermarket two similar gifts to buy, one with the sign and the other without, choose the one with the sign. This is becasse it made from recycled materials. If you want to get rid of old baby toys and you have two garbage cans to choose, one with the sign and one without, choose the one with the sign, it means someone will recycle this toy.

You can recycle paper, plastic, glass and metals. More materials and where to recycle, check in your home location for the places with the recycle sign. When purchasing new things, food, clothes, furniture’s and so on, always search for the recycle sign.

Reuse – better than recycling

The term of Re Using is the one step ahead of recycling. If you are able to reuse in your life, to break the psychological wall of using new things only, you will be able to help a lot to the global effort of saving the environment.

The whole idea of recycling is to save the environment. By recycling we are able to decrease the need in energy, to decrease the need of natural sources and to decrease the pollutions and consumption. As more we are recycling, the more we are helping. Re using is even better than recycling since the materials and the energy used in the recycling processes, are being avoided. The idea of re using is not new and its easy to explain with the following example:

Two friends have bought a fridge. Both of them are happy with the fridge and talked after a while. “You know” said the first guy, ” the fridge service department is the best. They are always available, coming on time and solving all the problems in few minutes”. “You know”, said the second guy, ” I have no idea about the service department, never needed them”. Now back to recycling. Re using items, re using sources of energy and products will prevent the need to recycle. Recycling is good, important and useful but is we can avoid it too, the situation is much better.

Re use as a way of life and save the environment. Reusing paper in the printing machine will save some trees, much better than to recycle the paper because of the energy needed to the recycling. After reusing the printing page on both sides, you are more than welcome to recycle it. Re use old clothes for washing items ( wash the car with old t- shirt ), for cleaning your house and for car oil checks. Better to use old pants instead of buying special oil checking product.

The more we are able to re use, the more we are helping to save the environment.
