Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live and I think this should be one of our main aims in life, not only for us, but also for our children and the generations to come.
Recycling protects the environment by conserving raw materials and protecting natural habitats for the future. It also saves energy and can save you money. Recycling just one plastic bottle will save enough energy to power a 60 watt light bulb for three hours! Yes, you read right, three whole hours! Is that amazing or what!
I have recently come across an amazing company : Cotopaxi, an outdoor company that funds sustainable poverty alleviation, moves people to do good, and inspires adventure through innovative outdoor products and experiences.
I love that their main focus is to alleviate global poverty by building sustainable solutions working with local communities.
They make some amazing bags (check them out here!) made fully completely from re-purposed fabrics. They are practical, handmade and since they are all made from scrap material, no two bags are alike!
Very inspirational stuff, isn’t it?
