The Ins & Outs of Recycling

Simply put, recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials! Of course, there's more to it than just creating new from the old. The process is also beneficial towards the surrounding environment in many ways!
As previously mentioned, recycling has various benefits! For instance, recycling reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators. Recycling also helps to maintain a cleaner environment, meaning less plastic bottles and other waste in parks and on the streets! Most importantly, it helps us reduce our energy use & allows for the conservation of our precious natural resources, such as water and our trees!
