The 3 R´s : Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
Currently recycling is no longer enough and we have to go one step further. In schools, children learn the Rule of 3 R´s from a very early age: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Three actions, three attitudes that in the same order should move our daily lives. We believe that great explanations are not needed for this rule. Keeping it in mind and carrying it out in day-to-day actions, we demonstrate our love for the planet and for the preservation of the environment.
