Wecycling the message

Recycling in the UK is a standard practice today, although a bit late compared to other countries.

My awesome Canadian mate Trev poked a joke at me a few years ago. I was saying how great recycling is. (I was on one about saving the planet).

He said that Canada was recycling when he was a kid and at that time we brits thought landfill was the way to go and he was right.

But thankfully not anymore, although there is still a mindset that black bags full of anything and dumping stuff in lay-bys and end lanes is ok.

“Isn’t that what the council is there for?” say the cryptics.

So I was interested to read about a new initiative in Lagos. They have started a new recycling or ’wecycling scheme with incentives for those who take part.

Yes, it may be a simple recycling, sorry ’wecycling’ service but it is an important initiative.

The story captures a really good point about how a clean environment leads to health, that leads to jobs. It is a really important point.

Our environment is the foundation for a healthy future, whether we are established recyclers or wecyclers, whether new into it or have our heads fully in the fly tip.

We need to continue to encourage and look for new ways of keeping our world clean.
