Recycling is not just for the environment anymore. It’s a national cause that has spurred millions of Americans to be more environmentally conscious and recycle properly every November 15th, otherwise known as America Recycle Day or RDC 1999-2009). The original call was created by National Coalition For Clean Coal Electricity 1997 who wanted people interested in recycling products from their homes instead of throwing them away because it helps keep our landfills clear which helps preserve natural resources like forests! In 2009 Keep America Beautiful became involved with this program making sure all recyclables were collected at home then turned into new materials through redemption centers nationwide where those same items could later.

Why We Should Recycle?
Protect the Earth
It protects our environment. The extraction, as well as the processing of raw materials for manufacturing often come at great cost to both water pollution and air quality in addition their mining consequences like accidents or mountain top removal leading to further environmental damage such has acid rain because we’re using up finite natural resources just so companies can make more money by exploiting them without thinking about how it will impact future generations who cannot afford this kind of abuse anymore! When you recycle something instead though- even if its an item that already been used once before-, all those problems go away since only old items get recycled into newer ones meaning less consumption.
You might have heard the term “Blue Ocean”? This refers to how many companies are now afraid of entering new markets because they don’t know what solution will work best. Well, I think we’re in exactly that situation with our oceans! If you ask me- no one has yet come up with an answer for recycling all this plastic into something useful again–and it just ends up being thrown away or sent down rivers where animals die from drinking toxic chemicals… Sure humans cause problems too but as long as there’s life on Earth (or sea), those issues can still be dealt later when everyone figures themselves out first.
Reducing the consumption of natural resources is not a new concept. With increasing global warming, many have turned to recycling in order for us humans who are accountable and thoughtful enough with our Earth’s limited supplies (such as oil) left before everything becomes unpleasantness again.
In fact it has been proven that by using recycled products instead of producing from raw materials will save on energy costs which equals more money saved – all while reducing pollution levels right off your own back doorstep without any effort required whatsoever.
What Can We Do to Reduce Waste?
Do Not Use Bottled Water
It is a sad reality that bottled water causes more plastic waste than any other single item. Bottling companies use over 33 million tons of this drain on our planet’s resources every year, and only 6.5% get recycled. If you worry about the tap water safety, the RO water filter system would be your preferred choice.
