Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on our natural environment. The amount of rubbish we throw away is increasing due to things like lifestyle changes and an increasing population. We need to increase the amount of rubbish that is recycled because we cannot continue to landfill or burn it forever.
Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste. Recycling reduces the need for raw materials so that the rainforests and other resources can be preserved.
Recycling protects the environment
Recycling helps protect the environment. In addition to saving energy, it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. Recycling reduces incineration. We then preserve natural resources for future generations. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites.
When we recycle, recyclable materials are reprocessed into new products, and as a result the amount of rubbish sent for landfill and incineration reduces.
Recycling 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. Recycling reduces the need for more landfills. No one wants to live next to a landfill.
Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into reusable objects to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, energy usage, air pollution and water pollution from landfill by decreasing the need for "conventional" waste disposal.
Positive Effects of Recycling
Positive effects of recycling on the environment includes the reduction of green house gasses, the reduction in using land fill for waste and cleaner water from less pollution. Recycling materials such as glass, plastic and paper requires less energy than producing them from virgin, new materials.
Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.
