A STUDY has shown half of us get confused by recycling symbols.
A new report from Which? found that 48% of people can’t identify the correct symbol for recyclable packaging.
The researchers reckoned that the number of different recycling or sustainability symbols made it difficult to remember which symbol meant what.
What’s really worrying is this means that half of us could be recycling our household materials incorrectly.
Which? is now calling on the Government to make clear and simple recycling labelling compulsory.
