USE THE THREE R ; Reduce - Reuse - Recycle


Recycling is the practice of reusing items that would otherwise be discarded as waste. Variations of recycling include upcycling, which involves adding value to an item for reuse, and downcycling, which involves breaking down an item or substance into its component elements to reuse anything that can be salvaged. Precycling, an alternative approach, involves avoiding the acquisition of unnecessary items that would have eventually have to be recycled or dealt with as waste.

Why is it important to recycle?

we could said that is important to recycle, because, this planet is the big legacy we are going to leave to the future generations, is the only thing that any body can stole us, and if we dont conserve it we are going to destroy it for complete, we have to be conscience that if we recycle, we are going to conserve the natural resources, this process would help us to conserve for example the trees that are the principal givers of oxygen, if we dont conserve the natural resources, we are going to get extinct, because whiteout the natural resources we could not live

contamination in the word

Look at any ecosystem and there could be multiple forms of contamination—streams full of toxic chemicals from industrial processes, rivers overloaded with nutrients from farms, trash blowing away from landfills, city skies covered in smog. Even landscapes that appear pristine can experience the effects of pollution sources located hundreds or thousands of miles away.

Pollution may muddy landscapes, poison soils and waterways, or kill plants and animals. Humans are also regularly harmed by pollution. Long-term exposure to air pollution, for example, can lead to chronic respiratory disease, lung cancer and other diseases. Toxic chemicals that accumulate in top predators can make some species unsafe to eat. More than one billion people lack access to clean water and 2.4 billion don’t have adequate sanitation, putting them at risk of contracting deadly diseases.

Colombia's armed forces have arrested 59 people in a major crackdown on illegal mining in the Amazon.Defence Minister Juan Carlos Pinzon said they had dismantled an illegal financing network used by the Farc guerrilla group.He said 63 sites near the border with Brazil and Venezuela - where gold, tungsten and cobalt were being mined - were raided.The Farc and the government have been in peace talks for the last two years."It is the cleanest and hardest blow in more than a decade, possibly one of the biggest in history, against illegal mining," said Mr Pinzon."This operation prevented the Farc from getting its hands on 20bn pesos (about $8m) he added.The operation involved more than 600 troops, police and magistrates in several regions of southern and eastern Colombia where guerrilla groups and criminal gangs are active.

many of the mines were operating within indigenous reservations.Among those arrested were 12 Farc guerrillas and five foreign nationals, including four Brazilians and a Venezuelan.President Juan Manuel Santos has said that he believes mining is a substitute for Farc's falling drug profits.The organisation had become a major farmer, refiner and illegal exporter of coca and cocaine by the 1990s, with ties to international groups and markets.The vast sums of money it earned from the trade financed its dramatic military expansion.But now after a decade of heavy military pressure from the Colombian military, Farc is much reduced.In recent years criminal gangs have emerged and moved in to take over drug-trafficking operations previously run by the paramilitaries.The Colombian government says these criminal bands, which it calls "Bacrims", are now a major threat.Control of the drug trade as a whole has also shifted to Central America and Mexic
