Recycling Why it’s so Important
There are numerous benefits to recycling and honestly, every step begins with you.
Even though you may know think you are making a difference – every person that recycles is changing the world, one piece of trash at a time. Recycling offers many advantages and benefits and we are going to go over a few of them here. Regular recycling directly impacts these following things:
- Reduction of Raw Materials
- Energy Usage
- Air/Water Pollution
- Waste Disposal
- Reduces Greenhouse Gases
For those individuals who choose to live a more ‘green’ lifestyle are avid recyclers mainly because it helps the environment tremendously. Think about all of the people that populate the planet, and how much waste is accumulated by the minute. Where does all of this waste go? It is so important to reuse the materials that we can and dispose of our waste properly.
Protecting the Environment by Recycling
Trees may still be cut down constantly for production reasons, recycling paper goods allows us to reuse those materials therefore minimizing the effects of deforestation. Reduction of Energy Mass amounts of energy is consumed in order to process raw materials properly. Recycling helps minimize this type of energy that is being consumed which is not only cost effective, it is beneficial for the manufacturers as well.
Reduction of Pollution/Global Warming
Instead of contributing to the mass amounts of waste that is burned, why don’t you help reduce the greenhouse gas amounts by recycling? CO2 and CFCs are produced in mass quantities which have a negative impact on the earth and its ozone. Clearly recycling helps reduce littering and pollution as well. The two really go hand in hand and it wouldn’t hurt for me people to be a little conscious about helping the earth as much as they can.
