Transcript

  • 1. Reasons to Recycle
  • 2. What is recycling? Recycling is a form of reuse that requires changing or reprocessing an item or natural resource . When we reuse objects, or make them into new things, the old material is not wasted, and new material does not have to be produced.
  • 3. 1. Recycling saves trees. Half the Earth's forests are gone, and up to 95 percent of the original forest area in the U.S. has been cut down.
  • 4. 2. Recycling protects wildlife habitat and biodiversity. Using recycled materials reduces the need to extract natural resources such as timber, crude petroleum and mineral ores.
  • 5. 3.Recycling reduces the use of toxic chemicals. Making products from already refined waste materials reduces -and often avoids altogether - the need for manufacturers to use toxic chemicals, essential when using virgin materials.
  • 6. 4. Recycling helps curb global warming. Recycling one ton of glass results in energy savings of more than 300% and lowers carbon dioxide emissions by 3.46 tons.
  • 7. 5. Recycling reduces water pollution. Turning trees into paper is the most water-intensive industrial process in the United States. Paper recycling mills nearly always use less water and they don't pollute the water nearly as much.
  • 8. 6.Recycling is fun!
  • 9. So go for it! Recycling is good for the environment 
