November 15 in America, the Day of recycling, the annual event, which became part of the calendar in 1997 at the initiative of the National Coalition of recycling. The need to reuse and recycle material has never been so urgent as today. The world population reached 7 billion, and America is responsible for a disproportionately large share of consumption of the planet’s resources.

We suggest you look at how things are going with the recycling and reuse of raw materials in countries around the world.
