  • Who Is this affecting!
    It’s affecting the human race
    Waste from non-recycled materials produces toxic fumes
    Cutting down plants and trees reduces our oxygen, making it hard to breath and rises the amount of people with asthma
    If we don’t recycle, we have to live in a dirty, polluted environment
    It’s cheaper to recycle than to buy new, unused materials
    Animals are dying and losing their homes. Recycling will prevent us from having to destroy animal habitats for human consumption.
    Waste infringes on animal habitats
    Non-recyclable materials require destruction of our environment
  • Our job
    Us humans have a job to maintain the Earth, and keep it a healthy living environment.
    Establish recycling program at your school or in your neighborhood
    Check into curbside recycling in your community
    Reuse items in our household such as plastic bags, boxes, reusable dishes
    Donate clothing, shoes, games, toys, furniture to second-hand stores
    Properly dispose of electronics, batteries, and toner cartridges.

  • How can we fix this?
    We can start to make houses out of recycled materials like Make It Right Homes in New Orleans has been doing since 2007.
    We can reach out to the people who’ve wanted to try it but don’t really have the money!
    We could give out or sale recycling bins to the public and use television time instead of crazy infomercials.
