A cultural change - a new art of living and working - is needed. The cycle must become the new guiding principle: «Use products for a long time and repeatedly. Avoid waste. " And this is exactly where the Smart Recycling Factory (SRF) “hooks up”. Their goal is to raise public awareness because «Awareness is the greatest catalyst of change» - E. Tolle.
