Recycling and it's usefulness.
Many people (at least from where I live) don't seem to care for recycling. To them, it's just a nuisance, why go to the effort when I can just throw it in the trash? It doesn't bother anybody.
Actually it does.
Have you ever seen the chairs at Fred Meyer that allow you to sit down while shopping?
You may have noticed it says it was made from recycled products, which serves it's purpose just like a regular chair. It may not come from a place like Pottery Barn, but does it need to?
- Huge amounts of energy are used when making products from raw materials. Recycling requires much less energy and therefore helps to preserve natural resources.
Many people know about the effects of deforestation and how many animals die because of it. If you love animals as much as I do, there's a way to help save them. And that's...you guessed it, recycling.
- Habitat destruction and global warming are some the affects caused by deforestation. Recycling reduces the need for raw materials so that the rainforests can be preserved.
If we all recycled more, we wouldn't be driving the animals away from their homes and that's a prize in my book.
