THE FINNS – the most enthusiastic newspaper and magazine readers in the world – have also learnt to recycle their papers. Paper fiber can be recycled 3-5 times which means that forests can be conserved and will keep producing oxygen and fighting climate change.
IT IS clear from these recycling success stories that new, greener measures can be adopted by the public. The next step is to broaden the scope: make sure that we are doing all we can in the recycling department. This job requires a new kind of attitude and little effort in learning the new ways. The pay-off is considerable: the households and the surrounding city will remain clean and safe, there is reduced burden on the environment and the world is a little better place to live.
