Brabantia “Sort & Go”: Smart Waste Separation for a Sustainable Lifestyle
Sort and recycle your waste easily with smart waste separation systems that also look great. Good for you and for the environment.
The amount of waste we produce is increasing every year in spite of growing awareness of its impact on our climate. There are several factors at play here. For instance, only glass and paper have high rates of recycling and reuse while a lot of other waste such as food packaging ends up in our organic waste bins. Furthermore, not separating individual packaging components often prevents packaging materials from being effectively recycled. But in times of climate change and reducing CO2 emissions, there's simply no option but to reduce the amount of waste we produce and get better about recycling. The best place to start is at home!
Avoid, Separate, Recycle!
The best waste is of course that which is never created in the first place! By consciously purchasing reusable bottles and unpackaged food and by using reusable containers and fabric bags for shopping, each of us can contribute to protecting precious natural resources. Because what is not produced does not have to be disposed of. However, where waste is unavoidable, we should recycle as much as possible and the first step towards recycling is the careful separation of waste.
A Classic Example: The Good Old Yoghurt Container
A lot of packaging used to be made entirely of a single material such as plastic but nowadays it is often made up of different materials. Case in point - the widely available yoghurt cups in most stores are often made up of plastic with a cardboard sleeve and an aluminium lid. Although the entire cup is discarded as a whole in the recycling bin for plastic, ideally it should be separated into its individual components. This is the only way for the sorting system to recognise each material for effective sorting. Even if it is space-saving, it is not a good idea to nest similar packaging/containers into each other as this can confuse automated sorting systems and possibly prevent the materials from being correctly recognised. Not all paper packaging is the same as regular paper that goes into the paper recycling bin. If it has a coating (for example, paper packaging for frozen foods), it needs to be placed in the recycling bin for plastic.
