With a fresh year ahead, new goals being set and New Year’s resolutions in full swing by now, why not take the environment and the future of our planet into consideration, by adopting and implementing ‘green’ behaviors during 2020.
Our glass recycling rate in South Africa has gradually increased over the years and is now at an impressive 42%. However, we still have a lot of room for growth. The Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) is calling on all South Africans to adopt and commit to recycling behaviors that will further increase local glass recycling rates.
If you are a parent with little ones, consider making your trip to the glass bank (where you recycle all your glass bottles and jars) a fun learning experience, to teach the little ones about looking after the environment. Instilling green behaviors in the youth ensures that they carry these habits with them into adulthood.
A simple green resolution to carry with you throughout the year is ‘responsible shopping’. Make sure you continue to make environmentally friendly purchasing decisions by shopping for products in recyclable packaging or packaged in glass – glass is one of the few packaging that can indefinitely be recycled and with your help, won’t end up in a landfill.
Make 2020 a year to be proud of and start your glass recycling journey! Find your nearest glass bank online at here.
The Glass Recycling Company (TGRC) consists of a team dedicated to increasing glass recycling in South Africa. We are passionate about ensuring every South African realises the value of recycling glass and actively embraces this practice.
We strive to educate, enable, encourage and inspire individuals to separate their glass for recycling, but do not physically collect or recycle the glass. Our focus extends beyond consumers and communities, but also on trade, industry and corporate South Africa. We also aim to uplift impoverished communities by creating income generating opportunities and skills development in the recycling sector. TGRC is funded by our committed members who manufacture glass or package their products in glass. We believe in the infinite potential of glass to make a real and positive contribution to society. At TGRC we are committed to show that glass recycling is worth the effort!
