Now you’re probably asking yourself, why should I recycle? Is it good for the environment? Well, here are some quick facts about recycling:
Recycling conserves finite natural resources – this is critical as the population continues to grow exponentially.
- Recycling conserves fresh water up to 95% in the mining and manufacturing process for many materials.
- Recycling prevents waste from going into oceans – it is proven, when there is a strong recycling culture, there is less litter and less waste going into ocean
- Protects forests which help to reduce CO2 emissions
- Significantly reduces use of fossil fuel energy and reduces CO2 emissions
And did you also know that
- Every three months, Americans throw enough aluminum in the landfills to build our nation’s entire commercial air fleet.
- The average person has the opportunity to recycle more than 25,000 cans in a lifetime.
- Recycling a single aluminum can saves enough energy to power a TV for three hours.
- It requires 95% less energy and water to recycle a can than it does to create a can from virgin materials.
As you can see, by recycling not only are you helping the environment but you’ll also be able to generate a little extra cash.
