A good example of a highly relevant event that raised nationwide consumer awareness was the first ever Global Recycling Day. This event was designed to provide the people of Western Australia with an opportunity to raise their awareness by getting them to think about the materials they consume on a daily basis.April 17, 2019 will be the 14th annual Global Recycling Day. This day is for collaboration and action in an effort to keep single-use items from going straight to landfills or becoming waste. It raises awareness of recycling and the important benefits it has on sustainability and natural resources.Recycling is not an option, it’s a necessity. We face a future in which we have to reduce our consumption and cut out single-use items altogether. This challenge also comes with a solution at hand: a green revolution that can usher in new, sustainable technologies and practices.
This is your challenge. You don’t have to be an environmental campaigner to get involved, or be able to spend many hours at a Recycling Day, but everyone can do something for 10/10/10. All we need is your support too. Got a blog? Tweet? Blog about it! Got a Facebook or MySpace page? Tag it! Post it on forums! Tell your friends and family! Spread the word! The more people are talking about what you could do on Global Recycling Day, the more interest there will be in this day. This is your chance to let the world know what is being done in your area. If you can’t take part in one of our events, then organise. Global Recycling Day is the annual international day of action involving over 150 countries, with thousands of successful activities taking place annually. Launched in 2001 by the Global Recycling Council, GRC, it was first celebrated on November 15th 2002 as a way to encourage and coordinate local, regional and global recycling activities around the world. Global Recycling Day provides an opportunity for the public – and governments – to unite behind a common goal: building a sustainable future that keeps products in use and material resources out of landfills.Global Recycling Day (GRD) is an initiative launched in 2010 by the World Economic Forum and endorsed by the International Solid Waste Association that focuses on recycling in order to raise awareness of the issue globally, with events held simultaneously within the United States, Canada and around the world. It is part of a global effort to urge individuals, organizations, institutions, communities and nations to increase their use of recycling as a resource instead of utilizing always more raw materials.Now, the time has come to get all outlets excited about the event and to let them know that if they link up with us on that one day then, with all our combined efforts, we will be able to make a real difference.

With media contacts from your organization and mine, we can have a truly impressive showing of support for GRD this year.We want to have more people aware of Global Recycling Day, so that we can see a growth in the amount of people doing their part. Also, GRD is an excellent opportunity for suppliers too, who might be looking at new ways of growing their business. You are much more likely to get the right people talking about your company if you can get in on the action and promote yourself during this year’s festivities.We are very proud to see the Global Recycling Day (GRD) campaign just keep getting bigger and bigger, and this year’s event will be the biggest yet.
