Reuse ,Reduce, and Recycle

Recycle to see a cleaner future!

Why You Need To Recycle

Waste harms the environment in so many different ways. Take the Great Pacific Garbage Patch for example. In the Pacific Ocean lies 2.5 million tons of garbage. The garbage patch is actually bigger than the continental United States! It is a major problem because the plastic in the garbage patch isn't biodegradable, and smaller fish eat it. Less than 5% of the world's plastic is recycled and it causes major problems like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
