Here are 5 reasons why we recycle:
It’s a global problem
Accumulation of waste is not just a problem for a single nation; it’s a global problem. If waste is allowed to accumulate, humans might run out of locations to bury synthetic waste, or the waste might bring devastating effects to the environment, which is happening unknowingly by the way through global warming.
Reduces Carbon Emission
Recycling greatly minimizes carbon emissions, commonly referred to as greenhouse gasses. If these wastes were not recycled, they would end up being combusted, emitting dangerous greenhouse gasses. Whatever your opinion on global warming, a lot of people converge to the idea that everyone needs to play a role in minimizing the effects of pollution and emissions. Research studies suggest that a single tree can get rid of 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere every year. Recycling is needed to save more trees to ensure a well-balanced level of carbon dioxide.
Leads to Creation Of Jobs
Recycling takes place in industries. If the act of recycling is ramped up, many recycling plants will be set up. More recycling plants mean more jobs. Statistically, recycling creates 10 times more employment opportunities than landfill waste management.
