Why It Is Important That We Recycle

by William Gist

Let’s be honest, we have all heard stories about how beneficial recycling is. Unfortunately, not all people do it. Some might simply not understand it, others might not care. Without a doubt, it is our obligation to help clean our environment and prevent pollution. Because of this, in the following text, we are going to discuss recycling at great length.

Firstly, we are going to discuss what creates pollution. Well, the answer is quite simple – we do. Surely, you must be aware of the exhaust gases that happen as a result of the manufacturing process that occurs in factories and power plants. Okay, we agree, it is the 21st century, and we need electricity.


But what is to point of technological development if we don’t use it to for a good cause. There are special filters that can reduce the amount of poisons gases thus prevent the greenhouse effect, but most factories do not use them because they are too expensive hence they are not only endangering the environment but also our health.

When it comes to the manufacturing of any sort, does it make sense when we say there is more debris after each process? No? Think about it this way. When your smartphone or laptop or any other device breaks, you simply go and buy a new one, right? But what do you do with the old one? You toss it in the garbage, right? Imagine what happens when millions of people do that. It is no wonder that there are more landfills with each passing day and that waste is just left there to rot and pollute the soil.


So what can you do to stop this? Well, recycling is the obvious answer. Nowadays there are numerous recycling centers where you can take your old device and they will do the rest. If you want to learn how these centers work, visit this website. By recycling, you are reducing the amount of waste, because that old device will not end up at a junkyard, but instead, it will be put through another manufacturing process and a new item will be made out of it.

This means that you will not only be preventing pollution and the greenhouse effect but will also help preserve natural resources. In addition, the production of recycled goods requires less energy when compared with the process of manufacturing new items from raw materials. What’s more, it costs less meaning that every country will save a significant amount of money which can be invested in other aspects that will improve the lives of its citizens.


Lastly, by recycling, we are also guarding our health. We have already discussed how facilities pollute the soil, air, and water, and who gets harmed in the end, we do. We breathe in that toxic air, drink the water, eat fruits and vegetables from that same soil, and so on. There are more and more people who are suffering from respiratory and heart illnesses. Also, let’s not forget about the deforestation because that wood has to come from somewhere.

All in all, we have tried to explain the main benefits of recycling. If you need more convincing start your own online research and learn what you can do to stop climate changes and save the environment.
