Sustainability means to keep something going forever. It means that Earth can continue to provide a home for humans and all other species (animals and plants) forever .
What is recycling? Recycling is the process of manufacturing new products from a product that has already been used. or has surved its purpose. If products get disposed in the appropriate, environmentally friendly way. It has been 'set in motion.' How can it help the environment? Recycling helps the environment in many ways. One is reducing pollution. To reduce pollution in recycling, you can not just throw rubbish on the floor or in the ocean. Doing this will harm the earths ozone layer and produce many harmful gases. If garbage is thrown in the ocean, it can kill our marine life.
Recycling helps to preserve our natural resources. Hundreds and thousands of trees are getting cut down everyday to provide us with all our paper and wood. if we recycle our paper products we can save more trees. Recycling products is very important so we keep our natural resources and do not destroy our earth for future generations.
How I went about my action... To achieve this. My family and I started to use the recycling bin more often, After hearing what recycling and pollution can do to the environment I decided to look after this matter in my family. Every time we had something that could be recycled, Plastic bottles, Paper etc... we would throw them out in the Recycling bin, not the normal garbage bin. The recycling bin is clearly seen with a bright yellow lid. To make sure everyone knows what goes in the recycle bin, i printed a list of things that can and cant go in the bin.
