18th March 2019 will see the second Global Recycling Day, a day focused on uniting the world’s approach towards, and attitudes to, recycling.

The theme for this year is ‘Recycling into the Future’, with a focus on innovation and youth, building a global perspective for recycling – increasing awareness of the urgent steps the world needs to take if we are to recycle more effectively and to the benefit of the planet.

Innovation is vital if we are to improve recycling practices and processes into the future, and we want to celebrate and recognise the work that many business and brands are doing across the world to protect the future of our planet.

To champion the innovative recycling solutions being born every day, we invite businesses, entrepreneurs, and individuals to contact us about what innovative initiatives they have put in place to optimise recycling practices in their business. We would love to hear about these to promote on our blog and our social media channels to Global Recycling Day supporters around the world.

Ideas should be sent to or posted on social media using #GRDInnovation.

Here are a few examples of those businesses already pathing the way to a more sustainable future.
