Recycling is one of the most sustainable ways to live, whether it’s reusing bags, throwing your paper, plastic, and metal into a recycling bin or wearing recycled goods. Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to "conventional" waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials. Materials to be recycled are either delivered to a household recycling center or picked up from curbside bins, then sorted, cleaned, and reprocessed into new materials destined for manufacturing new products. When we recycle, materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources which will help to protect natural habitats for the future. Using recycled materials in the manufacturing process uses considerably less energy than that required for producing new products from raw materials. Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials all of which create air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. When we recycle, recyclable materials are reprocessed into new products, and as a result, the amount of rubbish sent to landfill sites decreases which reduce emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.
