Recycling, everyone says theyíll do it but they never do. Recycling can help the Earth and I for one think itís awesome. Cities all over the country are banning plastic from landfills, Avondale should too. Using recycled materials will reduce the amount of energy used. Recycling will lessen pollution. In other words, one more piece of plastic in an Avondale landfill is one more scratch on our beautiful Planet Earth.
Now our wonderful Planet Earth will not survive if we donít recycle, so if Avondale doesnít recycle the Earth will perish. Thirteen states in this country are participating in a ban on plastic and other beverage containers from landfills. In Ann Arbor, Michigan, they have an organization that not only has curbside recycling but also several public recycling centers. Seattle, Washington and New York City have both created laws that give citizens a fine if they throw away recyclable materials. Cities all over the country are doing things like that. Avondale should too! Along with that recycling also reduces the amount of energy used!
Using recycled materials will reduce the amount of energy used. When people go to dig up minerals they use a lot of energy. By using recycled materials such as bottles, boxes, cans etcetera as household objects instead of digging up the minerals for our everyday things we save more energy. If someone went digging for any type of mineral deep in the Earth you would probably use a big machine to dig it out. That big machine uses a lot of energy. Also recycling will lessen pollution in areas everywhere!
If you recycle pollution will slowly fade away. This also goes along what I said about energy; when you use those big machines to dig for minerals they pollute the earth. When someone throws away garbage it goes to the dump at the dump it gets incinerated. If you throw away plastic and it gets burned the fumes and toxic waste goes into the air, it immediately pollutes it. Thatís why people should recycle instead of throwing away. Hopefully you understand why itís important to recycle and that youíll persuade Avondale to do this.
The people of Avondale make stupid promises theyíll recycle and they never do! So, just remember cities all over the country are banning plastic from landfills and Avondale should too. Using recycled materials will lessen the amount of energy used. Recycling will reduce pollution. These are some reasons why people should recycle and all those things will help our Earth.
