This picture shows a huge space and it’s filled with recyclables. Some of these items such as cardboard found in the garbage can actually be recycled! It’s is said that over 70% of garbage is actually recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it. We need to be putting the right things in the right bins. It has a huge positive impact on the earth. We need to stop dumping our waste in oceans or landfills and do something about it! All you have to do is spend a few extra seconds to see if it belongs in the recycling or garbage. Recycling protects the environment and our world by reusing so the companies reduce on new raw materials. In the end all the R’s tie in together. Refuse garbage, reduce how much you are producing, reuse what you have and recycle!
