Why Recycle ?
Creation requires raw resources. But when we recycle, existing material is put to use. Recycling saves extraction of the fresh raw resources, and reuses the existing ones that are no longer in use.
Each time we recycle a product, it requires lesser energy than producing a new one from the scratch. The considerable savings in manufacturing time and cost is a result of skipping the usual process of extraction of raw material, its transportation, refining etc.
Production and disposal of products requires many processes which have a large impact on the environment. By recycling, we reduce the pollution of air, water and land, thus reducing the greenhouse gas emissions contributing to global warming.
