Recycling is the process of separating, collecting, and remanufacturing used or wasted products and transforming them into new materials.
Here’s why recycling is essential:
1. Recycling saves the environment.
As you know, paper comes from trees, and thousands of tree acres are being cut down to produce paper. Thanks to recycling, we can lessen the number of trees being cut down and forests destroyed.
2. Recycling saves energy.
Producing recycled materials takes less energy and time than producing virgin materials. Saving energy has its own benefits, such as decreasing pollution.
3. Recycling reduces pollution.
By saving energy in industrial production, the greenhouse gas emissions from factories are lessened.
4. Recycling reduces the amount of waste products in landfills.
Recycling lessens the waste materials that are placed into landfills.
5. Recycling saves money.
Believe it or not, recycling offers ways to save money. One way you can save money is by selling recyclable materials to organizations that are willing to buy them.
