In Romania we capitalize only 14% of the total recyclable materials. The rest go directly to the landfill or incinerator, polluting the soil, water and air with: methane, microplastic, leachate, dioxin, carbon dioxide, slag, etc. Romania is in sanctioning situation from the European Union.
Through this quiz you will discover the rules of separate collection and ways to reduce the volume of waste from your own household that ends up in the landfill or incinerator.
"In the 7 minutes you play the quiz, you have time to make some decisions about your trash that saves the earth, both the soil and the planet, from hundreds of years of pollution. I think this game is worth your time! ” - Anastasia Staicu, Vice President of the SNK Association
"Many of us want to be reconciled with the thought that we have recycled what is left after consuming something. This is a behavior we want to encourage. However, things are not so simple and few materials are really recyclable and that if they are clean and put correctly in the dedicated container. How we can help recycling starts with rethinking shopping and assessing post-consumer impact. We want non-recyclable products and packaging to become history, not only through the pressure of the European Commission but especially through the pressure of consumers. We are putting a brick in this direction today, launching this quiz ”. - Dragoș Călugăru, General Manager of ECOTIC
