Abstract:

"Recycle The Essential Guide is the indispensable handbook to recycling today. With vibrant visuals and a clear, accessible layout, the book is an invaluable resource that tackles everything from the urgency of resource depletion on a global scale to what the individual reader can do to reduce waste in their own home. Beginning with a witty, thought provoking introduction by renowned journalist, Lucy Siegle, Recycle includes detailed sections on recyclable materials and what the individual reader can do to facilitate the recycling process. Case studies from all over the world pay tribute to exceptionally successful or innovative approaches to recycling and a consumer directory of eco designers proves that ethical living and trendiness don't necessarily contradict each other. Recycle also includes a comprehensive international directory, that points readers in the direction of organisations and charities that can help them to take further steps towards waste reduction."--Product description.
