Waste management is extremely important to make the SDGs a reality.
Most important, a proper wastes management relies on a proper waste sorting and disposal system.Our ecosystem is fragile and an inappropriate waste management has the potential to irreversibly damage it. Reducing waste, stopping the use of plastics, etc are the ultimate solutions.
While we continue to increase our waste, sorting becomes our unique key to keep this world safe for us and the future generations.

On the Global Recycling Day, we remind ourselves that we are responsible for our planet. Our actions can save it or damage it. It is a very good thing that companies, individuals, churches, schools, etc join the Clean Up Challenge. If we want to achieve the SDGs, we need to keep the Clean Up Challenge going.
