Around a third, or 35 percent, of London's household waste was recycled in 2014, which is only a 0.1 percent increase to 2013, while the national average is 43 percent. According to data from WRAP, Britons throw away about one third of the food they purchase, and about one million tonnes of that is whole or unopened. This means that each year, every one of us throws away 70 kilogrammes of avoidable food waste. Monstrous waste production, toxic pollution and the exhaustion of the Earth's natural resources are just some of the ecological problems that our society faces today. Environmental protection is individual, as much as collective task and there is a little something that each of us can do to make a positive difference.
