Recycling Heroes & Creative Innovation awards

The Global Recycling Foundation announced the winners of their Recycling Heroes 2023 award, marking Global Recycling Day on 18 March.

Ten winners for the Recycling Heroes award of $1000 each and ten winners for Creative Innovation awards of $250.00 each were selected from nominations received from individuals and business leaders, sole traders, corporates and multinationals who have demonstrated creativity and innovation to promote the value of recycling. This year, the Foundation focused on recognising creativity in 3 R’s – Reuse, Reduce & Recycle promoting resource efficiency, waste reduction & increased use of The Seventh Resource – essential raw material for the Industry.

Ranjit Baxi, Founding President of the Global Recycling Foundation (GRF), said, “The creativity of this year’s winners shows what we all can do to promote recycling when every regulatory and financial obstacle seems to have been placed in their way. When other priorities are confronting individuals and businesses, it is inspiring to see what our award winners are achieving around the world. GRF pays tribute to the example they are showing us all in the face of exceptional challenges as they uphold their focus on protecting the environment upon which we all depend.”
