According to the GOODWALL BLOG, you can help the environment by recycling. In this blog, he states that recycling is one of the best ways to combat climate change and save the planet we live on.
Recycling saves resources. Just as we recycle plastic, we reduce the need to produce more plastic. By recycling paper, we play a role in reducing deforestation and preventing the felling of trees. Separating cans from other metals reduces mining damage and increases the need for raw materials. Creating industrial-grade materials from scratch requires far more energy than simply reclaiming and reusing old materials. For example, it is estimated that “recycling aluminum saves 90% to 95% of the energy required to make aluminum from bauxite ore.”
Recycling saves energy because with recycled materials, the factory does not have to consume as much greenhouse gas emissions as it would if the same item were made from scratch using raw materials.
Recycling is also environmentally friendly. When reducing the number of new materials and natural resources, they must be extracted from the earth through farming, mining, logging, etc. We need to protect fragile ecosystems and wildlife from harm and eradication so that they can exist for generations. come. Recycled materials emit fewer greenhouse gases into the environment than primary production. Recycling can slow down the need for landfills. In the United States he has 2,000 landfills, all of which are full of solid waste. This doesn’t take into account the many that were closed because they reached capacity, or the future landfills that need to be created when the active landfills are full.
Finally, the blog points out that recycling can create jobs. that’s right. Believe it or not, one of the benefits of recycling is that it helps create jobs. A study by Friends of the Earth found that reaching his 70% home recycling rate would create 51,400 jobs for him in the UK alone. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found that achieving a 75% recycling rate nationwide would create 1.5 million new jobs in the United States.
So save the planet and recycle by bringing your shoes, clothes, tires, and household hazardous items to one of Recycle It Saturdays. Trade fair. Think about how much space you have in your closets, cabinets and storage areas at home or at work. See you November 19, 2022! We are looking for you and your staff!
