Carton recycling boost
Five figures on carton recycling caught my attention recently as more evidence of progress.
Three were from the Carton Council of North America:
• Just 18% of US households had access to local carton recycling programmes in 2009.
• This had risen to 57% in 2015.
• That’s 67.1 million households.
Two were from Tetra Pak:
• It wants 40% of all its cartons recycled by 2020.
• That’s 100 billion cartons a year.
One day, 100%.
