Please Recycle

It goes back to the age of Plato about 400 B.C, recycling has been part of human history through Wartime and Post-war, until now. Recycling "involves processing used materials into new products." Some materials that we can recycle are plastic, batteries, glass, paper, paint, print cartridges... There are many reasons why we should recycle, such examples are, conservation, energy saving, reduce pollution, landfill reduction.

Facts about WHY we should recycle:
  1. Recycling creates 6 times as many jobs as landfilling
  2. Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 trees, 2 barrels of oil
  3. Recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to operate a TV for 3 hours
  4. Americans go through 25 billion plastic bottles every year
It is super important to recycle and anyone can do it, the best part, is that, every little bit you do will help tremendously in the long run. Try it, start with paper or plastic or both and take them to a recycling bin that you should already have in your home.

There is so much that YOU can do with very little effort and you will probably save yourself a lot of money while you are at it!
