  2. 2. 5 Important Reasons Why You Should Recycle!
  3. 3. #1 Saves Natural Resources By making products from recycled materials instead of original materials, we conserve land and reduce the need to drill for oil and dig for minerals.
  4. 4. #2 Saves Energy It usually takes less energy to make recycled products; recycled aluminum, for example, takes 95% less energy than new aluminum from bauxite ore.
  5. 5. #3 Saves Clean Air & Water In most cases, making products from recycled materials creates less air pollution and water pollution than making products from original materials.
  6. 6. #4 Saves Landfill Space When the materials that you recycle go into new products, they don't go into landfills or incinerators, so landfill space is conserved.
  7. 7. #5 Saves Money & Creates Jobs The recycling process creates far more jobs than landfills or incinerators, and recycling can frequently be the least expensive waste management method for cities and towns.
