0855062 : Recycling


Published on

Pollution is a social problem which needs to be more globally addressed. When we don’t recycle and allow more garbage into landfills, we are slowly killing the environment and added more harmful gasses into the atmosphere. Recycling is a simple act which can make a big difference in the future. It doesn’t take much to place recyclable objects into the proper blue bins instead of garbage cans. As humans, we need to take the initiative to help preserve the environment for our lives and future generations to come.
