Global Recycling Day, celebrated today on March 18, is a recycling initiative that encourages us to look at our trash in a new light. Every year the Earth yields tons of natural resources, and at some point, they will run out.

Recycling is recognized in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 2030. It is a key part of the circular economy, helping to protect our natural resources. Many organizations have taken direct action to support the global green agenda. Helsinki Horse Show is doing its part in this important mission. In the 2019 event the theme of our sustainability program was Zero Waste. We concentrated on recycling and reducing waste, involving our spectators, the venue, our volunteers and the whole organization in the program. Our Jumps Green sustainability program will continue and expand in the coming events.

Recycling is an issue for all of us. We encourage people to think resourcefully. Share your ideas of recycling #globalrecyclingday #RecyclingHeroes.
