How to Recycle Plastic?

Growing up, we all learned the principle of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to limit waste generation. However, today plastic has become one of the most dangerous pollutants all over the world.

Unlike paper and food waste, plastic materials could take millions of years to decompose. Therefore, recycling plastic is of paramount importance.

For recycling, plastic objects are sorted by their resin type first. The most common process is by shredding these or by purifying them, converting the mass into pellets to be used later by other manufactures.
