Recycling is the key component of initiativesto reduce waste materials and the process of turning used substances intousable materials to divert trash from landfills, which brings many advantagesand benefits to different areas.
To help the environment, we need to start recyclingthrown bottles, paper, glass, plastic, and much more which will make theenvironment clean, green and healthy. According to the US EnvironmentalProtection Agency, “Recycling is the process of re-using a given product(beyond its intended use), or producing a new product from a recyclablematerial turns that would otherwise become waste into valuableresources.” (EPA).
Recycling is the only way that can save our environment from deteriorate so ithas become very important now days and for our future lives because it savesenergy, reduces landfill, protects wildlife, and is also good for the economy.So, We need to make every one aware about the importance of recycling and we shouldalso understand its importance to make this program successful for thebetterment of environment. Some poor countries are facing the largeproblem of unhealthy environment which has affected their health and not only thepoor countries but everyone on earth has suffered due to the massive productionof waste, a large problem with trash build up on our Earth. Becauseof the unorganized production of waste material, it has affected public health,environment pollution and threatens to drown some poor countries in toxicity. Thenon-recycled materials go into landfills or be dumped into the ocean which pollutewater and leak methane gas into the atmosphere which not only affects the humanbeing but also the whole eco system.
Similarly, as the paper we used are not recycled,it causes deforestation because more trees will be cut down, reducing theworld’s oxygen, increasing the carbon dioxide and causes deforestation. We willalso have to face the problem of electricity, if we do not recycle aluminumcans because lots of the world’s energy will be used to make aluminum fromscratch. Likewise, we are also going to run out of space to hide all the trashes,if we don’t recycle the things that can be recycled such as glasses and trash bags,which we can easily re-use than manufacture. The major problem of not recyclingtrash bags is that when the trash bags are dumped into the water, which aremistaken by sea turtles for jellyfish, and we end up killing them.
Another majorproblem that affects the earth’s climate system is Global warming which releasescarbon dioxide into the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere using energygenerated from burning fossil fuels and causes air pollution.
