Why Should You Recycle Your Waste?

Recycling helps to make the world a cleaner, greener place in many ways: Saves Resources – In a world so dependent on energy and resources, we are rapidly running out of raw materials. Recycling repurposes or reuses of materials to turn them into new products. If manufacturers to use fresh, raw materials, they have to be dug out from the Earth. This damages many creatures’ habitats. Saves Energy – Sourcing raw materials from around the planet means they must be located, extracted, refined and transported. These processes all use a lot of energy. We can save a huge amount of energy by recycling. Protects The Environment – Extracting natural resources can cause water and air pollution, which disrupts ecosystems and contributes to climate change. Recycling reduces pollution – in the UK it is estimated to save over 18 million tonnes of CO2 every year. Save Money – By recycling and repurposing materials, you need to buy fewer new products. This means you save money. Recycling is beneficial for not just the UK, but the whole planet. Here are some other recycling facts:
