How to use tech made from recycled materials

Recycling is a good step towards being greener. Whether that’s making sure your packaging goes in the right bin or composting your food waste. In the UK our average recycling rate is 45%. Below half isn’t great – especially when you think about the 221 million tonnes of total waste we generate per year!

But making that positive change towards a more sustainable future isn’t just about sorting our rubbish. It’s also about the choices we make when we buy something new.
