Recycling

WE MUST ALL RECYCLE!

It is imperative that we all recycle!

Recycle!

You must.

 

Many people do not recycle, and I find that absurd. Recycling is quite simple really, instead of putting your plastic in one type of container, you put it in another container that often smells much more pleasant.

Recycling requires no more energy than throwing something away. Even lazy people can do it.

But recycling is so much better for the environment. It keeps landfills less full, less plastic must be made, and fewer trees have to be cut down.

Truly, recycling is a win-win-win situation.

 

But, sometimes, people want to recycle, they really do, but the facility that they are in does not contain recycling bins. This is even more absurd. If your facility contains a trash can, then it should have a recycling bin as well.

It should be a rule: Wherever there is a trash can, there should be a recycling bin right next to it.

If a place does not have a recycling bin, a person may just shrug and throw away his or her water bottle, which would then go to a landfill and take 450 years to decompose.

I will repeat: Water bottles take an average of 450 YEARS to decompose in landfills.

 

I think that recycling bins should be tall and narrow like trash cans instead of short and squat like they normally are. It would make them more noticeable, and if a person notices a recycling bin, it would elevate his or her guilt of choosing not to recycle. Of choosing to put a water bottle in a landfill for 45o years.

 

Why should someone choose not to recycle? Why would a place choose not to have the option of recycling available to its patrons?

Why should people choose to destroy the Earth?

 

My note to you: RECYCLE!
