Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reduce, reuse, and recycle are called the three r's. The three r's help cut down the amount of waste that we throw away. The three r's save resources, energy and space for landfill. When your reduce, reuse, and recycle you save land and communities must use dispose waste of the landfills. Siting a brand new landfill has become harder and more expensive because of environmental regulations and opposition of the public.

History of Earth Day

Nelson then saw how a few amount of people were concerned about deforestation, the destruction of trees. Nelson then had a talk with president John F. Kennedy to help out with the issues. President John F. Kennedy agreed with Nelson and stated that it is an important issue.
