  11. 11. The Consequences of Not Recycling! <ul><li>Recycling is not exactly a new idea, but it is only moved to a more important aspect of everyone's lives. Within the last few years. We are still slow in progress in the green world, but some things have been accomplished. Is this enough? The answer is NO . </li></ul><ul><li>We need to continue to focus our efforts on more green ideas, conservation, and of course, recycling. </li></ul><ul><li>Some people, however, just cannot be convinced. For those skeptics, here's a list of things that might happen if YOU DON'T RECYCLE . </li></ul>
  12. 12. What are the Consequences of not Recycling? <ul><li>- IF YOU DON'T RECYCLE paper, more trees will be cut down, reducing the world's oxygen and increasing the carbon dioxide. </li></ul><ul><li>- IF YOU DON'T RECYCLE aluminum cans, lots of the world's energy will be used to make aluminum from scratch. Likewise for glass, which is easier to re-use than manufacture. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>ANYTHING </li></ul><ul><li>that is not recycled could go into landfills or be dumped into the ocean. </li></ul><ul><li>Landfills can pollute water and leak methane gas into the atmosphere. </li></ul><ul><li>You don't want that, </li></ul><ul><li>DO YOU? </li></ul>
  14. 14. Direct effects: if we don't recycle we have to cut down more trees which produces oxygen for breathing. Some simple consequences of NOT RECYCLING Secondary effects p lastics not recycled and put into landfills as well as electronic items leach lead and other toxins into the water table. Energy effects It takes more energy to do initial production of products than it does to recycle products like metals and glass.
  15. 15. CONSEQUENCES If there was ever a time to recycle it is now. We have been waiting too long and we have taken NO action. If we do not recycle our Earth will be scarred and polluted with garbage. Never give up for the sake of the inhabitants of our planet!!!!
