Glass and cardboard at 78.6% and 77.3% are the materials recycled the most. In a survey the majority of people in Spain believed that it is better to recycle than reuse and while many have clear ideas about the environment, 57% didn’t know what sustainable meant.
The survey, titled ‘Packaging: perception of environmental sustainability’, was undertaken by Jordi Sauret at the company Sociological Strategy and Investigation Feedback, and provides important insights into how the population view sustainability, ecology and the environment. The most obvious conclusion that was drawn from the survey, according to Sauret, is that “environmental protection is very much part of our culture and people are demanding that the government legislate to make it easier to buy and consume responsibly.”
