Who we are
Are you R is a project
with a clear target: raise awareness amongst EU citizens towards environment and the benefits connected to plastic recycling.
Plastic has been subject of several negative publications due to an unappropriated waste management.
Plastic is all around us and it is easily accessible.
It simplifies our everyday lives in many ways, but as easy it is to use it, it is also easy to get rid of it.
By disposing of it properly, instead, we can assure that it will be recycled and that it will give new life to commonly used products.
Over the years plastic got immense importance in several fields and industries thanks to its many undeniable qualities.
As a result, it has become difficult to think about how it could be replaced with alternative materials.
