During the past few decades, there has been an on going environmental movement to “go-green”. The purpose of this movement is to raise awareness of environment protection, be conscious of our actions, and find alternative solutions. Throughout the years, there have been numerous successful and unsuccessful solutions and methods to the issue:the methods ranged from conserving natural resources to anti-consumerism. However, one of the most effective and direct method is recycling. Recycling of water, raw material, energy, waste, and more is not only efficient in the way that it reuses its products, but also it further prevents pollution and global warming by reducing incineration, landfills, and greenhouse gas emission.
Introduction Environmental health has been a very important issue to talk about internationally these days. We, human beings are leading the earth toward its edge unconsciously. We are using natural resource more than we give to the Mother Nature. Day by Day, people are aware of what damage they do the environment, but they do not care of fixing this damage. In a very simple step, the road of a better healthy environment will begin; recycling is the best idea that illustrate the previous point.
Also, the recycling its self has small effect for reducing CO2 emission , but important thing is that people try to reduce amount of wastes by being aware of recycling. The government encourages recycling by establishing recycling low however, the government should improve systems and facility because they are not enough. Industrial companies should use the recycling system because they can get materials at lower cost, and inform to customers to collect valuable resources from items that they do not use any more.
The benefits of recycling are many and those includes reducing the waste send to landfills, prevent pollution, and have economic benefits that create jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries. Society should recycle in order to abstain and control global warming. With this in mind carbon dioxide is the main cause of this global warming. Humans recycle in order to reduce air pollution. Our environment is already contaminated and the last thing we need is to make it worse and contaminate it more (“How do we recycle plastic “Intelligent Mag).
Everything is made of forcefulness; cultural products such as our house, food, clothes all need energy. Recycling can be a significant strategy for long run sustainability. It can change the well-being and productivity of the natural ecosystem. By decreasing wastes, recycling similarly saves natural resources, encourage Biodiversity and protect the natural ecosystem. Waste is simply ‘wasted energy’.
Although recycling is everywhere in our lives, I will focus on our everyday waste products, why recycle them, how to recycle them, and if it is a worthwhile cause. There are a myriad of curbside recycling services operating nationwide, therefore, people can no longer make excuses for their lack of recycling. It is important that everyone becomes educated about recycling. This would lead to people making informed decisions about buying products which are recyclable and minimize the amount of garbage that cannot be recycled.Recycling 'healing' the Earth in many ways, such as helping to slow global warming, diminishing acid rain, reducing water pollution, conserving landfill space, and lowering pollutants in the air '. For four consecutive weeks, I collected my personal garbage and counted and/or weighed the respective products.
Environmental impacts from pollution in landfills have caused a shift in different perspectives on what steps should be taken to reduce the amount of pollution. Society today has felt that throwing away waste products is a form of reduction in helping the environment. Many are not aware, however, that landfills are polluted with increasing amounts of waste that are either not biodegradable or perishable. Recycling is an environmentally beneficial solution to reducing millions of waste left in landfills, cutting down costs on energy resources, and clearing pollution from the environment. Recycling should therefore be mandated in schools, communities, and across the country.
Talking about recycling is easy, actually enforcing the act is a bit harder. As I begin to become more aware of the reasons to recycle, I find myself taking the time to stop and think before I choose the garbage can or recycling bin. In its simplest form recycling is taking used products and instead of discarding them and finding ways to reuse (Strong, 1997).Though the long-term consequences of pollution is unknown, early indicators suggest consequences could devastate many life forms and pose many more health risks. By way of reducing landfills, conserving trees and reusing materials, recycling can reduce product costs and conserve our environment for future generations. Action is needed to reduce landfills in order to prolong the life of our environment.
When people just dump waste products instead of recycling, it is a misuse of the soil and can contribute to serious health conditions in animals, plants and humans. Therefore, recycling can protect natural resources, preserve energy and lessen pollution. If people want to save planet Earth for generations to come, then recycling is necessary. On Debate.org, the question “Should there be mandatory recycling?” was asked and 84 percent said yes, while only 16 percent said no (“Should There Be Mandatory Recycling”). Recycling is very important to the planet and can make a huge difference in so many ways.
One example of this kind of damage to the environment is acid rain. The costs to take care of pollution are difficult to evaluate, but are funded by the public in an attempt to make the environment better. Nevertheless, recycling does saves energy, since it also cuts down on pollution released by factories, and the corporations. At any time that energy is being used, the cost of producing pollution is authorized to energy consumers in their utility statements. This lead to the new clean air law, that utility firms must abide by with more strict standards in cutting pollutants that are released into the air while generating energy.
