The Importance of Recycling and Why We Should Do It!
Here are just a few reasons why we should all recycle:
Saves Natural Resources – By making products from recycled materials, we conserve land and reduce the need to drill for oil and dig for minerals.
Saves Energy – It usually takes less energy to make recycled products
Saves Clean Air and Water – In most cases, making products from recycled materials creates less air pollution and water pollution than making products from virgin materials.
Saves Landfill Space – When the materials that you recycle go into new products, they don’t go into landfills or incinerators, so landfill space is conserved.
Saves Money and Creates Jobs – The recycling process creates far more jobs than landfills or incinerators, and recycling can frequently be the least expensive waste management method for cities and towns.
Imagine we all played our part and recycled? How great would that be!
How about making it your goal for the year to start recycling? If if its just one thing, example: paper – it would make a big difference!
