If we are not moving forwards, than we are standing still. If we are not reducing the amount of waste we produce every day, than we are just making it more. For the Y generation recycling is becoming an obvious part of everyday life. For our parents though, it comes sometimes as quite a shock that they should somehow organise things they are throwing away. The crucial point is however, that recycling does not combine a series of complicated procedures. Recycling means forcing yourself to slightly change your current habits and maybe find a little bit more room for bins. It's not rocket science, it's so simple but can change so much. Therefore, I believe that introducing a common bill that would regulate this issue would just fasten the process of recycling becoming a worldwide habit for everyone.
Yes! Promoting campaigns that highlight the importance of recycling and creating a standard European system, since traveling to other countries can be confusing when it comes to recycling, since their systems are quite different.
Definitely! But all the time keeping in mind that recycling is only one part the equation. Don't forget to also Reduce and Reuse! The problem here is that the way our economy is based on growth, it kinda keeps requiring an ever increasing production, which, even if it includes recycling, is not super-compatible with the other two "Rs" in the long term. So, what we really need to change if we want to have an environmentally sustainable EU is our economy, in a way that will favour all three "Rs"!
Europe should join the let's do it world campaign to promote green environmental practices but also look at innovation the energy and waste sector.
Yes definitely. But to be really effective, it should be done the same way everywhere and with the more garbage as possible (today, it depends on the region to decide if it's possible to recycle or not a garbage and it's really confusing when you move elsewhere).
Sí. Creo que es importante e imprrscindible que la Unión Europea fomente acuerdos y tratados con otros países, como lo hizo para frenar la contaminación (mediante órganizaciones internacionales como la ONU o el Protocolo de Kioto), pues, reciclar es otra forma de contribuir al mantenimiento del medioambiente y por tanto disminuir la contaminación. Sino pensemos en los numerosos vertederos ilegales que ha día de hoy siguen existiendo en muchos países europeos. Mi prepuesta es no sólo concienciar a la gente (factor muy importante) sino crear más grupos de trabajos que se encarguen de acabar dichos vertederos y se aseguren de que la gente no tira nada ahí, mediante una señalización y crear contenedores de reciclaje en esas zonas. También es importante las campañas publicitarias sobre cómo reciclar y porqué.
Of course, no doubt and adding a price to the bottle to get it back when recycling ♻ (like Germany) would have a good impact, environmental and socio-economic
Not only making recylcing compulsory but also promoting the reduction of our garbage on a significant scale ! Possible ways for doing so: - reward (financial or other kind of reward) for doing recylcing or having less that a specific amount of garbage per person - zero waste challenge for families on different time scales (weeks, months, years...) with mediatic coverage - promote local zero waste shops by giving financial support to help to cover the high prices - put "returnable glass" back on habits and compulsory - educate youngsters to create their own cosmetic products (toothpaste, skin creams, soap, shampoo...) - being an example for the rest of the world by encouraging other countries to follow the steps of ecological process

Yes definitely, EU should push and help countries to use returnable bottles systems, like many European countries already have.
