recycling= less water and air pollution caused by plants with raw virgin materials
recycled materials reduce need to extract, process, refine, and transport the timber, crude petroleum, ores, and more that are relevant for virgin based paper, plastics, glass, and metals, recycling lessens the toxic air emissions, effluents, and solid wastes that all these create.
recycling helps reduce/ eliminate pollution involved with the production and disposal of consumer products.
Fancy work in factories= tons of pollution of chemicals
Mining iron, coal and other metals causes more pollution
Burning plastics causes air pollution
Littering causes water and land pollution
Yes we should recycle because recycling reduces pollution which can be harmful to the environment, also recycling saves money depending on the version of reusing recycling, and lastly littering causes water, air, and land pollution so recycling would reduce the pollution.
