There are many things that are important in this day and age. One of the most important of all is recycling. Our planet only has so many resources available at our disposal and recycling helps to conserve those resources. The act is important for many reasons and can be accomplished in many different ways, all which offer different benefits for Earth and us. When we recycle, we help to do things like conserving energy, saving available space for landfills, and conserving Earth's natural resources. Most landfills are full of materials that could easily have been recycled but instead taking many years to decompose it and only the take up more space when they could have just as easily been recycled.
Another reason that recycling is so important is that it helps to conserve energy. Processing recycled materials takes far less energy than processing material that hasn't been used before. For example when paper is recycled it uses around 80% less water and 65% less energy to produce than paper that hasn't been recycled. Conserving that much energy also helps to cut down a large amount of pollution as well.
Recycling is important for many of reasons. There are many different ways to that someone's able to do their part to help. All different sorts of materials are able to be recycled as well. From general household items like bottles, cans, batteries and various plastics to larger materials like aluminium and different sorts of electronics. It doesn't matter how you recycle, it just matters that you do your part to help conserve and save our planet resources.
