Saving Our Planet One Bottle at a Time
Recycling (turning trash into reusable materials) is a superpower that is frequently underestimated. I personally was one to undervalue the impact recycling can make on the Earth, until I began to research the topic. One organization that is making great strides is Recycle Across America. RAA is a nonprofit dedicated to creating standardized labels for recycling bins to make it easier for people to recycle correctly. They issued the following statement, “Without exception, recycling is the top action society can do to simultaneously improve: the environment, the economy, sustainable manufacturing and to prevent waste from going into oceans.” They also promote the specific benefits of recycling, such as how it has the potential to create 1.5 million jobs.
I believe that recycling is something we all need to get used to doing until it becomes a habit. Recycling is super easy especially now that recycling bins are almost always available in public areas. There are many items you can recycle such as:
- Aluminum Cans
- Paper and Cardboard
- Glass and Plastic bottles
- Even your old cell phone can be recycled!
Next time you’re out, look for recycling bins to dispose of your trash. Don’t you want to have an immediate influence on saving your planet?
