Why is it important to recycle?
Today one of the biggest concerns we face is pollution of the land, water, and air on our planet. For the centuries, we are acting like we are only creatures on this planet like we have some right on all that this planet have to offer. Not only that we take all, but we don’t give back, and this has to change. It’s never too late to start, but there is not so much time left now. The negative effect on the environment is one of the biggest concerns today. Recycling helps in many ways with this problem, but it also has big role in the preservation of natural goods. By using recycled products we help save energy and preserve natural resources.
The industrial process of recycling has smaller negative effects on the environment. Recycling creates less water and air pollution than primary production of the same products. Recycling also creates more space, because the landfills take so much less space.By using less space for the landfills there is no need for deforestation. This also makes the pollution of the land considerably lover. Recycling creates new jobs. New jobs are created by opening the new business for gathering, production and distribution of secondary materials.
Reuing and renewable and non-renewable resources
The studies have show that up to 80% less energy is needed to make materials like aluminum, lead, magnesium, zinc or copper from recycling. Metals are able to keep all their quality when recycled more times. This is essential for preserving raw material supplies. Recycling brings down effects of the greenhouse, that is created by emission of the gases linked with an explanation of the natural materials like metals, or oil. By recycling, this can be reduced up to 30%. Additionally, recycling includes reusing all things that can be reused, for example, old clothes. You shouldn’t throw old clothes, out there is always someone that needs it, you can sell it or even give it away.
One of the best-known recycling methods are simply a separation of the trash, there is a separate bin for every kind of the materials, for glass, plastic, paper. Plastic is used to make now plastic that is lower quality and its used for industrial purposes. Paper is recycled in a similar way like plastic, and the product is also lower in quality. It’s time to stop being selfish and think about our future, and future of our kids. We need to be an example and give our best to try and save this planet.
