While we all take small steps to a sustainable future, let's take some inspiration from a tricky industry to decarbonise!
2020 saw momentum for sustainability explode. Whether peoples’ eyes were opened by the world shutting down – allowing nature to breathe a sigh of relief – or by the fact that our treatment of the planet and the beings on it is almost definitely linked to the outbreak of Covid, it would seem people are really waking up.
In the many ways we try to be more sustainable in our everyday lives, many of us dismiss or forget about composting. We think it’s too impractical or we don’t see how it would help us live a more sustainable lifestyle. All the waste you could compost at home can just decompose in a landfill anyway, can’t it?
Well, it can’t – and that’s only the beginning of why recycling is so important to living sustainably in the 21stcentury.
