As an environmental activist with a very busy schedule, this makes me feel like I’m doing so much more for the world day by day and I can safely say I’m a proud user of the Horizon app

Great job!

Thank you!

 I’m just a bored 15 year old who is passionate about treating the earth correctly. What I’m trying to say is I love the app and have always wanted an app like this I just never could put it into words so thank you!!

This app will go far!
App user

This is such a simple and great idea for anyone confused about their local recycling rules. As someone who moves a lot I can never keep up to date with which council accepts which materials!

Amazing app!

I downloaded this app after seeing it on Tiktok and I’m glad to say I am very pleased with it. I always try to recycle where I can but sometimes packaging is labelled in a way that makes it very hard to understand. This app has made this process ten times easier and I hope that everyone uses it!

Stay up to date.
