Promoting a Cleaner and Healthier Environment In order for everyone to enjoy a healthier and cleaner environment, it is very important to know how to manage used materials or waste. Recycling and waste management are techniques that can help lessen the amount of waste people throw and dispose on a regular basis. Recycling process transforms waste items into a new product, reducing its harmful effect to the environment. This process starts from collecting waste material from different places like homes, roads and shops. Then, such waste materials will be sorted out according to their type, size, shape or weight. The most common materials that can be recycled are plastics, paper, glass, tins and many others. Recycling as a solid waste management technique is advantageous. This helps reduce the pollution of air and water caused by poly bags and other wastes. It is also advantageous in the sense that it helps save energy since those products made from recycling consume less energy than those products generated using raw materials. This then provides people with a healthier and cleaner environment while saving the space that can be otherwise used for landfills. In some countries, recycling offers employment to many people. Recycling process is economic in nature because waste can be easily collected. When people are aware of this process as well as its advantages, it would be easier to motivate them to recycle rather than just dispose their waste without thinking that they can actually be useful in other ways. Landfills should not be the ultimate destination of these waste materials. This is one of the most important things everyone should know about if the welfare of the environment is really important. Although not all wastes are recyclable, it matters a lot if you are exactly aware of those waste items that can actually be recycled. Even kids can recycle because it is very easy to do. If you instill in your children this habit and they are well informed of the benefits of recycling, you will surely contribute to making the environment a better place to live not only for today’s generation but also in the future.
