The name “Recycle Lebanon” is a pun to 
re[psy]cle the system from mindsets to actions.
 
 
The waste crisis was the last [plastic] straw in a crippling state where water, electricity, air quality, and basic rights dance in complacent corruption.
 
 
Headstrong to collectively, dynamically and holistically shift the story of our throw away society, the NGO sheds light on indegenous circular living culture.
