Why should we recycle?
Recycling is important for many reasons that directly affect your future. Next time you finish a bottle of water or read a magazine, use these reasons as a reminder of why it’s important for you to recycle them:
- Saves natural resources and wildlife: Recycling helps preserve natural resources like trees for paper! If we help preserve natural resources, we’re also helping wildlife keep their homes.
- Saves energy: Recycling helps save energy because manufacturers don’t need to produce products from raw materials. Instead, they can repurpose recycled goods!
- Reduces landfills: When the trash truck picks up your waste, they bring it straight to an area to be buried called a landfill. Landfills can overflow and harm the environment.
