Australians recycle more, care less about the environment

New findings from Roy Morgan Research for Recycling Week suggests that Australians do not necessarily identify as environmentalists, despite being keen recyclers.

As of September this year, nearly 18 million people - or 91.1% of the population - have admitted to recycling waste, with women (91.8%) slightly more than men (90.4%)

But as the recycling rate has grown in the last 15 years, only 63.2% of Australians say they are concerned for the environment, down from 68.8% in 2001.
