Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle for a Sustainable Future

With guest Simar Bedi, the owner of Sol Recycling, we discuss how to embed and integrate deeper recycling efforts in North America. Specifically —

– The Three R’s of Recycling: Each person in North America produces about one kilogram of waste per day. And the shocking part is most of it is recyclable! 

– Waste Audits: Sol Recycling conducts waste audits to help businesses achieve zero waste by diverting up to 80% of their waste through recycling.

 – Global Recycling Practices: Items that may not be recyclable in one country can be used in another. 

-️ The Evolution of Recycling: Recycling has evolved as an industry, with metals and paper leading the way and plastics posing new challenges. The good news? There are growing opportunities in the recycling industry, with new careers emerging for engineers, researchers, and developers.

– Small Steps Towards Big Change: Change can be uncomfortable, but Simar suggests starting with small steps, like choosing products with minimal packaging. Businesses can also reap financial benefits from implementing sustainable waste management practices.
