According to CharMeck.org, Solid Waste Services (2013), “Do you know why it’s important to recycle? Interested in what happens to the items you recycle? Wondering why certain items can’t be recycled? Click here for all the answers and a variety of additional recycling information”.

WHY? 

‘Garbage Island’ aka ‘Trash Island’ is my reason for WHY recycling should be on the minds of every human being.  Last year in my environmental economics class, our professor showed us images of this body of water in the Pacific Ocean.  All this garbage pollutes our sea life.  As of today, this massive floating pile of trash is the size of Texas.

Who is responsible for this pile of trash?  We are responsible for it. That is WHY we all need to make a habit to recycle our garbage. Recycling or Reusing protects are planet and our natural resources.

WHAT?

Caring wife and mom, who wants to change daily habits for improving the environment. I believe that each person can make subtle changes. Recycling is one of those subtle changes. Learning about how and what is recyclable can lower energy, water and natural resources. Our earth is limited with her resources. Be kind to her and she will be kind to us. Please think before you consume or throw away!
