Now we understand what is recycling and wonder why should we recycle? There are many reasons on why we should recycle, which includes:
Recycling conserves resources – When we recycle our waste, it is turned into new items! This means we don’t have to use more natural resources to make new products. Over the years water bottles are recycled to make new products, you can even use old tires to create notebooks.
Recycling saves energy – Recycled materials in the manufacturing industry takes a lot less energy than it does than newly sourced materials.
Recycling helps protect our environment – Recycling means we do not have to gather new raw materials which causes lots of pollution. Thus, saving energy which means it reduces greenhouse gas emissions which helps to combat climate change.
Recycling reduces landfill – Anything we don’t recycle will end up in the landfill. Most of those items take thousand years to decompose. The more we recycle, the less material ending up in the landfill.
Recycling can reduce your carbon footprint – Everything we do on this planet leaves a trace. Recycling can help save our environment, preventing it from being damaged.
