According to the latest report by the Balearic Islands Government’s Department of the Environment, only 25% of plastic packaging is recycled. A frightening fact. Bearing in mind that there has been a waste and recycling management system for over 20 years one might conclude that is has not had a massive impact or at least that it is not the most effective one. Certainly, it is not enough to deal with the plastic challenge we face. Luckily, the tide seems to be turning.
