DO YOU HAVE ANY COINS?
Recycling has actually been forgotten during the pandemic. It is actually not an issue to be forgotten or put to sleep. Sustainability is an issue that should always be on the agenda, even a matter of vision, in order to leave a livable world for future generations.
Those who have this vision are of course the ones who will rule the future. Super markets and chain stores are starting a new recycling project every day. With the recycling vending machines they place at the store entrances, they provide disturbances for shopping carts. The process is very simple and practical. You take your hand in your pocket to buy a shopping car. No change. You have two options, of course. The first is making money, but it’s annoying. Lots of coins and weights in your pocket at once. Your second option is the plastic bottles you will bring with you. I can hear your voice; If we remember to take plastic bottles with us, we will also buy coins. Of course, it’s not about corruption, it’s about our future. We throw the plastic bottles that we will prepare before we go shopping, into the recycling automat before we start shopping and the change is ready for the hoop shopping cart, and by protecting the future, sending the plastic bottles to recycling… Could a greater happiness than this be a movement loaded with more responsibility consciousness?
These recycling vending machines, which are located in super markets and chain stores, are not new in the world, yes, but it is pleasing that they are gradually taking place at every store entrance everywhere in our country. Moreover, these recycling vending machines are not provided by a public institution, the brands are completely their own enterprises and investments. So I shouldn’t say what can I do. You can do many things for recycling individually and institutionally. A small snowflake can and transform into a giant snowball in an instant and into a giant avalanche in a short time, into a recycling movement. The script is actually short and to the point. A brand puts a vending machine and each individual throws their plastic bottles there. Two brief, meaningful and useful moves.
3R principle; Reduce, Reuse and Recycling, ie reduce your consumption, reuse and recycle. Reducing consumption may be somewhat difficult, but reusing and recycling is a complete performance. It is entirely in your hands to perform this performance. 93.6 percent of PET bottles are recycled in Germany and 32.1 percent of new PET bottles are produced with these recycled raw materials. This is an enormous number. It shouldn’t be difficult to achieve this worldwide. Apart from its contribution to the environment, its contribution to the economy and its contribution to employment is invaluable. 150 Million TL, 150 Million Dollars, 150 Billion Euro snowflakes have already begun to merge… Be a snowflake too! You just throw a pet bottle in the recycling machine! Become a superhero protecting the world too!
By the way, do you have any coins?
