In 1997, the National Recycling Coalition created America’s first-ever recycling day. Since then this initiative has spurred residents of the United States to embrace recycling and buy only recyclable products properly with a goal that by 2020 we will have recycled over 50% more material than what can be found in landfills today.
In 2009 Keep America Beautiful joined forces with them as a partnership leading up until November 15th where millions across all fifty states celebrate one big holiday–Recycle Weekending occurring from October 27 -November 1st. Every year these events attract thousands of young people eager to learn how they can make their own difference through waste reduction initiatives at home or school, so please join us on Saturday, November 8.
Reasons to Recycle
Recycling is a great way to protect our environment. What do you think when your recyclables end up in landfills or get burned? Not only does it affect air quality, but the chemicals from burning these materials could leak into nearby soil and water sources too! Recycle instead – recycle for reuse whenever possible so that we can avoid any potential problems with extraction/processing processes leading to pollution (think mining).
Recycled material often gets used by manufacturers again which reduces waste output- this option saves resources AND prevents environmental damage.
Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental problems today. It kills wildlife and endangers humans, as well because it can lead to bigger issues for both land life or sea creatures living off this garbage in their natural habitat.
Output: People are always asking what they can do to help protect our environment? One simple thing is recycling! When plastics get thrown away instead of being recycled-which requires energy from fossil fuels like oil-the materials will eventually break down into smaller pieces called microplastics which have been shown by research studies.
To be eaten by fish who then become poisoned due to produce neurological symptoms similar to those seen after eating certain types of foods containing toxic chemicals.
Recycling is a great way to save on manufacturing costs. Manufacturing processes that involve recycled materials require less energy than those involving new raw material, and this trend can be observed in other production factors like transport packaging etcetera too! For example: more energy may needlessly go into extraction of natural resources if we use up old products instead – but with recycling these jobs get done by selective searching through different types, so there’s no waste or pollution at all
Recycled goods also entail much smaller carbon footprint during their life cycles; because they don’t have any potential future impact (such as disposal) it makes them environmentally friendlier overall.
How To Reduce Waste
Avoid Bottled Water
By avoiding bottled water, you can save the Earth from pollution. Bottled waters are one of the biggest contributors to plastic waste that ends up in landfills or oceans causing clogging and damage! The Earth Center at University Columbia reported 33 million tons used annually with only 6% recycled which is not enough for our beautiful planet anymore. In alternative, you can purchase a RO water filter system that can trap various contaminants in water, leaving you only clean, healthy water.
How Do You Dispose of Old Water Filters?
If recycling your own used filter is not possible or desirable, take them to an EPA-certified hazardous waste collection center. The correct way for most other types will be found in the instruction manual that came with it when purchased – if this doesn’t work out either then contact local authorities about finding appropriate landfills where they don’tmind taking these kinds of wastes.
Reach out to your filter manufacturer’s customer support team if they have a recycling program. If so, request/follow their instructions for sending in old filters and ensure that you package it well with plenty of packing material before shipping them off-site! You may get an envelope pre-stamped by the company at no cost; check this first just in case there are any issues during transport like getting wet due to rain or snow storms (happens more often than not).
If none exist then consider finding out what kind of plastic was used inside each shell – some companies indicate these details on individual packages while others stamp.
