Recycling reduces the amount of energy needed to create a new, similar product. If we didn’t recycle paper, more trees would have to be chopped down, transported, and manufactured into the finished product.
This reason why you should recycle is a very important one, as energy conservation is one of the key ingredients for the fight against climate change. Tied in with energy saving, is the reduction of pollution as a result of manufacturing processes becoming more efficient.
Any reduction in CO2 or other harmful gases is not only a key ingredient for the fight against climate change, but a key ingredient for cleaning the air we breathe.
If we can reduce pollution levels from the manufacturing industry by a significant level, this could have a positive impact on our health.
The more we recycle, the more we can help to reduce the burden on local and national landfill sites. As population levels increase, we will need to find more landfill sites, which will harm the surrounding environment and wildlife.
This is another important reason why we should recycle more, in order to reduce the impact landfills have on the surrounding environment.

A Mini Waste Hanging Wastebasket is a terrific easy solution for office recycling. The importance of setting up and implement a recycling program in the office environment today is huge. Unfortunately, placing a few larger containers throughout the office is not as effective as it once was, when everyone used a central copy machine. Today, with desktop computers and now laptops being the norm, a lot of office workers print from their desk and most folks work with a desktop printer.
In that situation, paper that should be recycled might end up in the wastebasket. For a very cheap price (just a few dollars per desk) you can make sure that most paper thrown away in your office gets recycled as it should be. At a cost $4 to $9 you can have a deskside recycling bin at each employees desk or workstation.
There is a great advantage when recycling becomes simple ordinary procedure. Desktop recycling stations fit onto ordinary wastebaskets so sorting items is easy. Also, desktop recycling meets the recycling goals that many companies are putting forth today, as well as instilling a sense of pride in your workers.
But desktop and deskside recycle bins are not just for the office. As home recycling methods they excel because they simply fit right along with your desktop printer. For home or office desktop recycling is the way of the future, and is a huge money-saver over having to buy too many large recycling units.

Recycling has a significant positive effect by reducing the amount of energy needed to make products from new materials. When recyclables go to the landfill, more materials must be mined, harvested or refined to replace the discarded item.
These are energy-intensive processes, and recycling removes these steps entirely, producing energy savings. For example, making an aluminum can made from recycled materials requires only 5 percent as much energy as making a can from virgin materials.
While energy savings aren’t as dramatic for other items, in all cases products made from recycled materials require less energy than those made from new, according to the EPA.
Energy savings also mean fewer greenhouse gas emissions associated with climate change. The EPA reports that in 20011, 25 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions were eliminated through recycling more than 7 million tons of metals, equal to taking almost 5 million cars off the road in a single year.
In the case of landfills, diverting materials to recycling also decreases greenhouse gas emissions. Landfills produce gases consisting of about 50 percent methane and 50 percent carbon dioxide, and are the third largest source of human-produced methane in the US.

Children are thrilled to learn about recycling, and they have probably already heard something about it from school. It is important to involve your children in recycling at an early age. Remember, habits that they form now will stay with them the rest of their lives.
Children may not understand the importance of cleaning or replacing air filters on your air conditioner unit but they can easily understand the importance of turning off unneeded lights, unplugging appliances when not in use, and purchasing energy-efficient light bulbs.
Explain to your children in an age-appropriate manner what conserving energy means and then have them help you to think up ways to achieve it. You may be surprised at how enthusiastic they are.
A 6-year-old may have a great conservation idea you’ve not yet even thought of. If your children are involved with the brainstorming and planning, they will be more apt to be eager participants in the ongoing efforts.
You can even get the children their own recycling bins. Stackable recycling bins are great choices for children. They love the different colors and can even make a game out of recycling.
Children can stack their own colorful bins, and they love the feeling that they are really part of the recycling process.
