Why do we have to recycle these things?
There are some things that YOU get if you recycle Plastic Bottles. Did you ever notice the "Ca 5 cents" sign on the plastic bottles? That means that if you recycle it, then you can get five cents for each bottle! You can recycle it at Safeway. I know that to you five cents are not very much, but once you collect lots of bottles, they can turn into many dollars. Now it's more and you can buy cool items when you have money... Another easy way to "recycle" plastic bottles is to reuse the bottles again and again! Easy!
Recycling batteries are good for the environment. If you just throw batteries in the trash can, then that is bad for the environment. Batteries include a harmful chemical called "Mercury". This chemical is bad for the environment.
Recycling bags are good for the environment. Some people just throw them out in the open. Maybe a plastic bag may fly out into the open. Then, an animal might choke or suffocate on the plastic bag because it might think it is food.
Well, of course you know why to recycle paper. What are paper made of? Trees. And if you recycle paper, what do you save and conserve? Trees! You also save the water used to make the paper.
