You care about the planet. So you recycle. Right? Quick, easy and good for the world.

82% of Londoners are concerned about climate change*

And lots of us are acting to do something about it. Many of us are great at recycling, but some of us could do more. “Don’t be that person. Recycle.” is intended to celebrate all of us who are recycling, and give a little nudge to those who could be doing more. 

Recycling alone won’t change the world, but it’s a quick, easy thing we can all do to help the environment.
