We take resources from the environment and produce finished good that we all consume. After consuming what is left of it will be put away as garbage, most of which will be going back to the environment as things that would turn out to be hazardous for the environment.
This is commonly seen in massive factories where they don’t give proper attention to the disposal of waste. We live with the help of environment since we are a part of it. And we should keep in mind that any threat to the environment will be a threat to us as well.
Recycling is a method of savingAs we know we get resources from the environment. These resources are scarce since we have so many needs and they are not enough to cater to all of them. Therefore, by recycling we will be able to save resources for the generations to come. Products made out of plastic, polythene, paper and etc. can be recycled. Many trees are cut down in order to produce paper. Moreover, to extract resources we need energy and by recycling we are able to save energy as well.
Less pollutionAs we get rid of garbage the number of rubbish tips keep increasing. This will end up polluting the land, the air and in some cases even water sources. So, by recycling we will be doing a favour to the environment as a way of showing our gratitude towards it for all that we extract from the environment.
Reduces greenhouse gas emission Recycling will reduce the emission of harmful gases to the environment. These gases cause climate changes and are a main reason for global warming as well.
Helps in preserving nature’s beautyRecycling will help retain the beauty of the nature while keeping our surroundings clean. Through recycling waste removal will be done in an organized manner and as a result there won’t be garbage dumps everywhere.
Creates new opportunitiesRecycling is not just about putting away garbage properly and processing them in order to reuse them. It is wider than that in scope. This will create new employment opportunities for people. There will be various designations connected to researching, collection of waste, separating waste etc. Apart from these benefits, recycling will help us in keeping diseases away as a result of a clean a healthy environment. Recycling can be a little expensive as a process and could take time to see clear effects. But, it is a change worth making for the present and the betterment of the future.
