City of Lahti encourages locals to utilize textile recycling points in exchange for incentives

The city of Lahti in Finland has announced its textiles recycling rate has increased by 500% following its pilot incentive scheme for textile waste.
The trial, running over the first weeks of June, is an experimental project set up by the City of Lahti. The project aimed to see if small incentives such as coffee vouchers and pool passes, in this case provided by the city, could have a positive effect on the recycling rate of textile waste.

                This type of initiative should be encouraged as humans were created in a way that they appreciate being rewarded no matter how small the reward is... Rewards encourage action and action is what we need in today's world

                  This is a very good idea... I believe that for citizens to undertake actions that will lead to the curbing of climate change and pollution they have to be rewarded
