Why should you shop recycled?

It reduces energy use... there is a significant difference in the amount of energy needed to manufacture products from virgin materials compared to products made from recycled materials. An aluminium can made from recycled cans uses 95% less energy than one from virgin material.

It increases the demand for recycled products... like any market, you need both supply and demand so the more people that shop recycled the more of a demand there will be for recycled materials which will make them more valuable, this is a good thing as we need recycling systems to be sustainable over time.

You will be supporting the circular economy... by choosing to buy recycled products you are supporting a business that is responsible, most business' can be 'sustainable' but not all are responsible!
