The Theme for 2019

After the successful launch of Global Recycling Day in 2018, the Global Recycling Foundation has confirmed the theme for 2019 as ‘Recycling into the Future’. Global Recycling Day will focus on the power of youth, education and innovation in ensuring a brighter future for the planet. It will take place on 18th March 2019, when people around the world will be invited to show their support for recycling.

Global Recycling Day was created to celebrate the importance that recycling plays in preserving primary resources (water, air, coal, oil, natural gas and minerals). Aiming to bring people together and champion ways to put our planet first, Global Recycling Day highlights the need to consider recyclable materials as resource rather than waste, celebrating the power of the “Seventh Resource” – the goods we recycle every day.

By focusing on youth and innovation, the Global Recycling Foundation will encourage the world to look towards the impact that today’s young people and future technologies can have on recycling. The Foundation is seeking partners to help spread this message across the world and is inviting businesses to become ‘Friends of the Foundation’, as well as offering a number of key sponsorship opportunities.

As in 2018, will continue to act as the key portal for all activities relating to the day – a home to showcase sponsors, highlight case histories and stories, bring campaigns to life and share materials. Global Recycling Day’s current social channels Facebook (@globalrecyclingday) and Twitter (@gblrecyclingday) will be joined by Instagram (@globalrecyclingday) and three key hashtags will be in use: #globalrecyclingday #GRDfuture and #GRDinnovation
