With time, humanity has being accumulating tons and tons of waste on our earth. The population on our world consumes more waste than the earth can abolish. The biggest problem of all is the lack of awareness; there is ways to reduce this waste to a point where we would not have to worry about running out of space to store it. The amount and size of landfills are growing at an outrages rate, the more technology, cars, and materials we use the more we waste. Today’s society has grown to be the most consuming society yet due to the easy and desirable obtainability of technologies around the general public. This world’s consuming behavior produces the highest waste per capita numbers ever recorded.

According To Understanding Environmental Pollution by Marquita Hill, “Humans are massively changing the earth.” On average, every American produces around 4.5 pounds of trash daily and uses twice the amount of energy necessary to live. Waste keeps accumulating on local landfills; consequently, society is starting to have to deal with environmental problems never challenged in the past. Landfills are ticking time bombs producing a generous amount of unknown gases and chemicals that are damaging nature.

Almost every substance, synthetic or natural, can pollute. Her book also states, “The amount of synthetic and other industrial chemicals thrown into nature are increasing at an unreasonable rate, and therefore, polluting the earth extremely.” By transforming natural lands into landfills, the population is destroying natural. The ecosystem it’s changing as new toxic gases and waste is duped into it. All of this unnatural substances adhered to nature is known as pollution.

Recycling helps to reduce landfill space, disposal cost, and reduces pollution. According to The Green Book by Rogers & Kostiger, “If every American simply separated the paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum products before trashing them the amount of waste would decrees by 75%.” To save our ending natural resources from running out society must recycle as it is becoming tremendously indispensable.

Unfortunately, most of the raw materials and energy that we consume are not usable as they appear in nature; men must collet, clean, concentrate, and convert those natural materials and energy for them to become consumable. Trashing the Planet by Ray & Guzzo states that to do this man devours a lot of energy and resources to transform the materials that we use. An example would be a tree, a natural resource that must be manipulated down to create furniture, paper, structures, ships…etc., when we recycle all of those, we decrease the amount of trees needed to be cut down.

The worse of it all is that if people were aware of how to be more conscious of their waste, not only they could help protect the planet, but also save money globally. To recommend our society to change their unbearable consuming behavior would be unreasonable as people always want to own the latest technologies, cars, clothes…etc. Nevertheless, asking people to recycle, re-use, donate, and reduce it’s a much enhanced request. Even though all of these options do not completely prevent the world from filling up with waste, they do highly reduce the amount of waste, and more importantly, they reduce the time it would take to totally eliminate this waste.

 

Recycling is vital for a healthy and caring community. Re-suing reduces the amount of waste and helps us save money and time. Donating is a form of recycling as it allows other people to still give a use to things that might have being consider waste to other people. Reducing consumption saves money and helps people live an austerely life and not only care about superficial materials.

In conclusion, Recycle-Reuse-Reduce and Donate!
