  • Why recycling?

    Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to conventional waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution, and water pollution.

    Increasing wealth and population in developing countries such as ours, means the amount of waste we are generating has increased enormously in recent years. If we don’t recycle, they end up in landfills, oceans etc. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites, which means, more pollution. As we don’t recycle, we end up using more and more natural resources and causing global warming. Recyclable waste that is thrown into the sea is killing millions of creatures every year.

    The importance of recycling and reusing cannot be stressed enough, its uses are endless.
