10 Reasons to Recycle




If you love this earth, you probably know that recycling is a great practice. Recycling is part of the process of sustainable living to save our environment and natural resources. This helps us to live today without compromising the lives of future generations. So, before you throw something in the trash, ask yourself: can it be recycled? 


There are a lot of reasons to recycle if you don’t already. 


  1. Saves energy 
    Recycling saves energy because the manufacturer doesn’t have to produce something new from raw natural resources. By using recycled materials, we save on energy consumption, which keeps production costs down. 


  1. Reduces landfills
    The size of existing landfills can be significantly reduced if we reduce our daily waste and recycle more.


  1. Reduces the use of toxic chemicals
    Making products from already refined waste materials reduces the need for manufacturers to use toxic chemicals, essential when using raw materials.


  1. Good for the economy
    Goods made from recycled materials use less water, create less pollution and use less energy.  


  1. Helps our climate problems and Global Warming
    Recycling produces considerably less carbon, which reduces the amount of unhealthy greenhouse gas emissions. 


  1. Creates jobs
    More than 56,000 recycling and reuse enterprises employ 1.1 million workers nationwide. 


  1. Reduces water pollution
    Making goods from recycled materials generates far less water pollution than manufacturing them from original materials. 


  1. Saves you money
    When you recycle or repurpose old products, like those honey jars and have less dependency on new products and containers, you save money. Check with your local food trucks or cafes, some of them may encourage bringing in your own bowl or container and credit you. The same with bringing your own shopping bag to your local grocery shop. 


  1. Conserves natural materials
    Recycling helps conserve important natural materials and protects these habitats for the future. 


  1. Preserves the future
    By being aware of our consumption of recyclable products and how we’re sorting for waste will allow our future generations to live in abundance.

  • I love that you explained why we must invest our time in recycling to reduce our landfills. Recently, one of my uncles mentioned he’s interested in creating a recycling program for his workplace, so I think he’d enjoy reading your article for sure. Thanks for the insight on recycling and its multiple benefits for our environment. https://www.epsonline.com/services/pcb-disposal/
