DID YOU KNOW THAT IS PAPER IS 100% RECYCLABLE AND IT IS THE MOST RECYCLED MATERIAL IN THE WORLD?
Reusing paper and cardboard allow us to obtain new products that are more sustainable and environmentally friendly. There are products that can have multiple life cycles, up to 7 in the case of tissue!
That means that paper fibers can be recycled up to 7 times.
This is the perfect way to promote circular economy.
That’s why it is very important to perform a quality recycling process. We, as citizens, have the responsibility of doing it correctly, but… How?. Here are 3 tips on how to do it at home:
- Place the paper and cardboard in the corresponding trash can.
- Fold the cardboard boxes before throwing them into the trash can. Like that, you can fit more inside.
- Do not throw materials such as plastic bags, ropes, etc. In the same bin.
Take into account that paper can always be recycled: The paper industry guarantees that all the collected paper is recycled.
Thanks to your good practices in the recycling process, products that are made out of recycled materials have more sense. This is the case of our brands CG Ecologic+ or Nature
. We use recycled paper as a raw material for manufacturing them.
By doing so, we reduce the volume of this residue in dumping sites. On top of that, our GC Ecologic+
paper is certified by independent entities such as FSC
Remember: Using recycled paper in single use products, contributes to the protection of the environment. There are no excuses for not being sustainable and practicing circular economy!
