Brightgreen celebrates National Recycling Week

10th November 2015

This week marks the 20th anniversary of Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week. To celebrate this year’s event, Planet Ark has released a report to help educate Australians about the real impact recycling can have on the economy and the environment.

According to the report, recycling and composting creates more jobs than incineration and landfill, with 9.2 jobs in recycling for every 2.8 jobs in landfill. This means it’s not just the planet that benefits from sustainable practices, it’s important for business and people too!

We’re big believers in recycling here at Brightgreen. You may already know that our core mission is to design products that are long-life, low-energy and sustainable. But did you know that our LED designs are 98% recyclable, and oftentimes made from recycled aluminium? Furthermore, when our products do eventually reach the end of their lifespan, we’ll recycle them for you through our buy-back scheme!

Learn how you can get involved with National Recycling Week.
