3 Reasons Why You Should Recycle Plastic Bottles

Slide 2:

Plastic bottles line the shelves at stores and gas stations, and many people purchase and then toss them without a second thought. However, recycling those bottles can have a huge impact on the environment. Here are three reasons why you should recycle plastic bottles.   1. Plastic is Multipurpose   Plastic is an incredibly versatile material. It can be used for bottles and containers, and then recycled and reused to make everything from grocery bags, building materials, carpet and even clothes.

Slide 3:

2. Plastic is not Environmentally Friendly   Many plastics are not biodegradable, and it can take decades or even centuries for some plastics to break down in landfills. Once that material does break down, it may leak unsafe material into the ground, contaminating soil and groundwater.   3. Recycling Plastic Saves Energy   Recycling plastic instead of creating new material requires far less energy. This means electrical power, oil and other resources are conserved, and even greenhouse emissions are reduced when plastic is recycled instead of produced.

Slide 4:

Don’t let your old bottles and containers sit idly in a landfill for other generations to deal with. Make sure to recycle your plastic bottles to help save the future and the planet.
