Participants from around the world will share their innovations, concepts and ideas to help shape the future of recycling.

how to get Involved on Global Recycling Day

Every day is a great day to promote recycling, but all of us at RoadRunner are especially excited when a whole day is devoted to it! The mission of Global Recycling Day can be broken down into two parts: to enlighten the world that recycling needs to be looked at as a global issue, and for the world to look at recyclables as a Seventh Resource, not waste. If you're wondering how your office can get involved this year, the Global Recycling Foundation encourages you to 'Read, Learn, and Do' :


about innovation in recycling. GRD features many informative resources on their site about bettering recycling in our communities, global action on recycling, fun facts, and the power of the Seventh Resource! 


about the power of youth and education. This year, the foundation has focused on educating the youth around the world about the power of recycling by connecting it to the soccer industry. They encourage social media users to post a video of themselves scoring a "Top Bins" goal while pledging to commit to better recycling practices. Follow and use #RecyclingGoals on your social channels to stay connected with this movement. Learn more here. 


your part for recycling. No matter where you are in the world, there are many ways you can make a difference. The foundation has included information on Global Recycling Day events taking place around the world and where to get involved, how brands are doing their part to better recycling, and how you can share what your business is doing to celebrate Global Recycling Day. The foundation encourages all individuals who are bettering recycling practices in their business to share their innovations on social media using the hashtag #GRDInnovation. Learn more here.
