Recycling is a popular idea and recycling for good causes even more so. Recycling for good causes, however, shouldn’t be our only motivation. We should be proactive about recycling to ensure that we stop clogging up the world with rubbish or even worse dispose of it in such a many it becomes a danger to the environment, animals and people. We need to boost recycling efforts in our home, in the workplace, and public spaces. But what can we do? We need to remember that tins, plastics and other compounds, such as styrofoam, are not biodegradable and shouldn’t be thrown out with our general household rubbish. By keeping items such as plastic bottles, soft drink cans and cardboard separate, we are reducing the amount of landfill and the space required to keep it, and making it easier for recycling centres to sort through the various waste items that we use in our homes and workplaces on a daily basis. Our actions directly impact our Earth, and it is critical that take action so we leave the smallest footprint on the Earth as we possibly can.
