Why you should join #repakteamgreen

If everyone in Ireland recycled just one more piece of plastic every week we could recycle 250 million more pieces of plastic every year!

We are calling on everyone to play their part in recycling more. While working with producers to reduce 
unnecessary packaging, we are asking everyone to recycle more items at home, at work and when on the go. Remembering always to recycle with care – CLEAN, DRY AND LOOSE.

Together we can prevent recyclable packaging going to landfill, reduce litter, and help Ireland hit its 
environmental targets. Join Team Green now and take the first step, by pledging to recycle at least one 
more piece of plastic per week.

+11.4

million more plastic items recycled in Ireland since Team Green launched

Under new EU law we must achieve plastic recycling targets of 50% by 2025 and 55% by 2030. We need everyone’s help to do this. Join today to help reach this target.
