The Benefits Of Recycling Plastic

Slide 2:

You know that recycling plastic bottles and containers is a good thing for the planet, but do you know exactly why? Here are a few of the key benefits .   It Diverts Waste From Landfills   The less we put in our landfills the better. Landfills are designed to be tombs, so it takes hundreds of years for its contents to break down. Some plastics never break down and simply take up volume in the Earth’s precious soil forever.

Slide 3:

It Prevents Ocean Pollution   Millions of tons of plastic end up in the Earth’s oceans every year and severely damage ocean wildlife and ecosystems. Some of the plastic continues to float atop the ocean surface, while some gets washed ashore onto otherwise beautiful landscapes. Recycling prevents more plastic from accumulating in our Earth’s waterways and shorelines.   It Creates a Source of Raw Materials   Recycled products are cheaper raw materials than new manufactured materials.

Slide 4:

Therefore , businesses save money and can pass the cost savings down to consumers by creating more affordable products.   Everybody Wins   When you recycle, everybody wins. Drop off your plastic bottles, jugs and containers at your local recycling facility and earn cash for helping the planet.
