Global Recycling Day in 2023 will focus on the theme of innovation when the organisers choose next year’s ‘Recycling Heroes’.
The Global Recycling Foundation, which organises the special day, is looking for nominations for Recycling Heroes 2023 from individuals to business leaders, sole traders to multinational businesses, or towns and cities that have actively recycled during one of the toughest economic periods for many years.
Winning entrants will receive US$ 1 000 (EUR 950) and their ideas will be publicised on the Global Recycling Day’s social media channels globally.
Ranjit Baxi, president of the foundation, says: ‘The whole world is going through difficult economic times and many countries are suffering the consequences of climate change. It is vital that everyone should play their part, and recycling is an important element in the struggle against global warming.
‘In past years our Recycling Heroes have demonstrated that every individual and business great or small can have a positive impact.’
An additional 10 prizes of US$250 will go to those who can produce the most innovative re-use of everyday items. Suggestions include a telling image, art or an idea for a commercial application to recycle waste into a useable product.
Entries for both competitions closes on 3 March 2023 and the winners will be announced on Global Recycling Day on 18 March.
