Christmas is almost here and packaging as we all well know is a definite by product. With that in mind recycling is a word that should be substituted in its place. This is what Repak have to say on the matter.
As households around the country wrap their presents and stock up with extra food and drink Repak is asking people to keep a green eye on the extra 75,000 tonnes of packaging from biscuit tins and beer bottles, to toy boxes and wrapping paper that could be recycled.
Repak aims to collect and recycle 48% of the Christmas packaging waste generated over the holiday period. It is estimated that a massive 75,000 tonnes of packaging will be generated by Irish householders this Christmas.
To get you in the mood Masamba, a band whose music is created from recycled materials will be playing South King Street In Dublin from 4-5pm tomorrow 22nd December 09. I stopped by the launch of Repaks Green Christmas campaign today to see what you can expect…..
