Global Recycling Day is a special day that holds a lot of importance for us at ECANDI. As a company that is dedicated to promoting sustainable living and reducing waste, we understand the significance of taking action towards creating a cleaner, healthier world.
On March 18th each year, people from all over the world come together to celebrate this day and raise awareness about the importance of recycling. It’s an opportunity to take small steps towards a more sustainable future and make a positive impact in our communities.
In this blog post, you’ll learn more about the significance of Global Recycling Day and how you can get involved to create a better world for ourselves and future generations.
Here are a few reasons why recycling is so important:
Conservation of natural resources:Recycling helps to conserve natural resources like timber, water, and minerals. By recycling materials like paper, plastic, and metal, we can reduce the need for new raw materials and protect natural habitats from destruction.
Reduction of waste: Recycling helps to divert waste from landfills, where it can take up valuable space and emit harmful gasses. By recycling, we can reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills and create a more sustainable future for our planet.
Energy savings: Recycling requires less energy than producing new materials from raw materials. For example, recycling aluminum cans can save up to 95% of the energy required to produce new cans from raw materials.
Job creation: Recycling creates jobs in industries like waste management and recycling processing. By supporting recycling, we can help to create sustainable jobs in our communities.
At our eco shop, we are committed to promoting recycling and reducing waste. One way we do this is by offering a convenient recycling drop off point for our customers.

But recycling isn’t the only way to reduce waste and protect the planet. Here are a few more tips for living a more sustainable lifestyle:
- Reduce your use of single-use plastics: Single-use plastics like water bottles, straws, and plastic bags contribute significantly to waste and pollution. One simple way to reduce your waste is by opting for reusable alternatives, like a reusable water bottle, a metal straw, and a reusable shopping bag.
- Compost your food waste: Instead of throwing away food scraps, consider starting a compost bin or pile. Composting helps to reduce waste and create a rich, soil-like substance that can be used to fertilize your garden or outdoor space.
- Shop locally and ethically: Supporting local and small businesses not only helps to stimulate the local economy, it can also reduce the environmental impact of transportation. Look for products that are sustainably and ethically produced, and consider choosing second-hand items to reduce waste.
At our eco shop, we offer a wide selection of products that are designed to help you live a more sustainable lifestyle, from reusable shopping bags to natural cleaning products. By making small changes in our daily lives, we can all contribute to a more sustainable future for our planet.
