🗞️ Driving the news: Businesses are increasingly incorporating recycling into their operations, a move highlighted during the UK's Recycling Week campaign
• This initiative encourages companies to identify and capitalize on "missed captures" — recyclable materials that are often overlooked

🔭 The context: The push for recycling is part of a broader shift towards sustainability and waste reduction in the corporate world
• Companies are being urged to move away from a linear economy, which discards materials thoughtlessly, towards a circular model that emphasizes the reuse and recycling of resources

🌍 Why it matters for the planet: Recycling not only helps businesses save costs and comply with regulations but also significantly reduces their environmental impact
• By minimizing waste, companies can contribute to preserving natural resources and reducing carbon emissions, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change

⏭️ What's next: Businesses are encouraged to adopt robust recycling policies and practices, such as conducting waste audits, educating staff, and collaborating with suppliers to reduce packaging waste
• National campaigns like National Tree Week also offer opportunities for companies to demonstrate their commitment to the environment

💬 One quote: "Companies recognizing their role in combating climate change through recycling and other CSR efforts will gain a real competitive edge," (Justin Aldridge, Technical Director at SEO Agency Artemis Marketing)
