How you can reduce wastewater by recycling packaging - blog & infographics

This year on World Water Day we consider how we can reduce, reuse and recycle wastewater and improve water quality. As our population increases, our growing demand for food and goods is leading to greater volumes of wastewater being generated. Today, water pollution caused by wastewater is rapidly becoming a global issue.

We have highlighted how, while cleaning and reusing wastewater will help alleviate this problem, it is also vital that we reduce the amount of water we pollute in the first place. We have looked at five industrial products that many of us use every day and are used in packaging. The results show how much water pollution is generated during the production of packaging and demonstrate how we can all help as good citizens to significantly reduce wastewater by reducing and recycling our packaging.
