Plastic waste is a massive issue at the moment affecting communities, oceans and the majority of our natural environment. We have a love hate relationship with plastic. It is extremely useful for everyday life but with an estimated 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans today, this is a huge issue which cannot be ignored. Luckily, we can all play a part in helping to solve this plastic crisis. In addition to cutting down on the amount of plastic we purchase, we can make sure that for that plastic we do use, we recycle as much of it as possible! By recycling more at home, this has the benefit of leading to a cleaner home and a cleaner environment!
BetterCleans is a premium house cleaning services company in Milwaukee and as recycling is a hot topic amongst our customers and with plastic waste being such a major issue; we wanted to help make things easier for people to have a cleaner home and a cleaner environment. Our new infographic looks at how you can recycle at home in just 7 steps and do your bit for the environment!
The major takeaway here is that, if you learn more about your local recycling initiatives, and ensure you are recycling more effectively at home, you can have a major impact on the environment.
