Welcome to Recycle Theme Plaza!
Though many people proclaim they are for protection of environment, only a few people practice what they preach. For example, most of us use throwaway goods carelessly.
From September 16 to 30, an exhibition that reminds us of our environmental problem was held at the Recycle Theme Plaza that is located in Mok dong, Yangchun district, Seoul.
The exhibition was aimed at people who use goods that cause environmental pollution. And it exhibited throwaway goods vs. environmentally-friendly goods and  excessively packaged goods vs. suitably packaged goods.
In the fight against environmental pollution, several companies have already developed various naturally-decomposable goods. However, they are two or three times more expensive than existing goods. So, the companies need to economize their production costs.
Kim Sun-ah, a representative of Recycle Theme Plaza, said, "Most throwaway goods that we use are made by synthetic resins, so they don't decay easily. We have to stop using them. I hope that companies reduce excessive packaging, too. And we all have to protect nature not only by just saying so but also by practicing what we preach in small ways."
