Did you know that it takes 450 years for one plastic bottle to completely decompose? Think about all the plastic materials that have been produced, spread across the globe, littered everywhere in our ocean, our land and even in our own backyard. Recycling enables the materials we used for our consumption to be reused again instead of extracting from the earth’s natural resources through quarrying, mining and logging. Recycling will help reduce the efforts of attaining resources from our environment while protecting and preserving it for the future.
Recycling also saves energy, reduces greenhouse gases that can help with the climate change and produces clean air and helps with water pollution. When we recycle, our carbon footprint slowly diminishes. If we all do this altogether, this could create a positive impact on our environment – one trash at a time.
