‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house, there was potential recycling that we shouldn’t throw out!
The house is never fuller than at Christmas; full with presents, decorations, wrapping paper, cards and food. But what happens to it all once Christmas is over? Did you know that in the UK alone:
- An estimated one billion Christmas cards are destined for the bin after December 25th?
- Enough wrapping paper to stretch to the moon will be thrown out?
- 125,000 tonnes of plastic packaging will go in the bin rather than recycled?
- Six million trees will be scrapped?
- 4,200 tonnes of tin foil, used to cook the turkey, will get thrown away in the UK?
Before you start to think that everyone here at Rabbit Group is some sort of Scrooge, we don’t want you to stop enjoying your usual treats this Christmas, but we do ask that you think about how you dispose of any leftovers or packaging after the festive period is over. The best way to do this is to follow the three Rs of waste management – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reduce your waste by trying to be an eco-friendly gift giver and buying gifts with minimal packaging, reuse any Christmas cards and wrapping paper for tags and Christmas decorations next year, and recycle any materials from Christmas that will be accepted in your recycling bins. Help us to become a greener society and show goodwill to the environment this year.
Merry Christmas from all of us here at Rabbit Group and all the best for the New Year.
