Keep our earth clean

There are 3,091 active landfills in the U.S and over more than 10,000 old landfills. That’s a lot of landfills! What if we all recycled more? Then the U.S would have less active landfills. Many people recycle to save trees, and keep the earth clean, happy, and healthy.

If you start recycling there would be less landfills. People throw a lot of things in the trash can, instead of recycling them. Why don’t you  go in the recycling bin? Many say things can be recycled such as bottles and boxes. Bottles and boxes take up a lot of space, that space can be saved in the recycling center. If we don’t recycle all that trash goes into the landfill.

How do you know it can be recycled? Should this bottle go in the recycling or the trash? You know it can be recycled because on the bottom of a water bottle there are little recycling symbols on the bottom. in the middle of the bottle or container there is either the #1 or #2, and that means that it usually goes in the recycling can in your house. Instead of throwing away things that should be recycled, makes sure you go in the recycling bin. Usually people don’t look on the bottom of a bottle and just throw the in the trash. That is a landfill waiting for you.

Don’t use plastic bottles. Use a reusable bottle instead.

People reuse water bottles or reusable bottles to save money but this also helps save the environment. When people do this they don’t have to keep buying so many water bottles. There are over 2 million tons of thrown away water bottles in landfills in the U.S. says the Water Bottle Project. I think that we shouldn’t buy any more disposable water bottles. You should buy a reusable bottle so you don’t have to keep throwing away the plastic bottles. This will help save the environment.

You can recycle or reuse paper too. Use the front and the back of the paper. You know the scraps that you get after your done cutting? You can reuse those scraps to make anything you want without throwing it in the trash. This means less trash in the landfill too.

Do you want the world to be filled with trash? Think about it for a second. The world depends on this. You can use a reusable bottle and check the labels to make sure if something can be recycled. It just takes a minute to recycle things. Many people recycle to save trees, and make the earth clean, happy, and healthy.

Let’s save paper

Recycle Logo From Recycling Bin

save paper save trees.

Have you ever wondered how much paper people waste? People waste
70 million papers each year in the U.S.A. Well people waste lots of paper for no reason and I think that’s a waste of paper and a waste of trees! If you want to waste paper you better recycle it instead of  throwing it in the trash can. We shouldn’t waste paper because it’s better for us humans in my personal experience.

When people print they should use both sides of a paper instead of using  one paper. We also waste paper on classwork, homework,and jobs. In my personal experience is that I often waste paper when I run too many copies. I often make copies of things that I end up not using too.

We should save more paper because when we don’t it kills the beauty of trees and it matters because it kills lots of trees. We should also save paper because its better for our environment and helps stores with paper. People should also save paper because its a less of a cost.

What are ways to save paper? Wasting paper needs to stop. (Ways to save paper) You can save paper by using both sides of a paper. Other ways to save paper is to really shorten receipts  because at a lot of stores they give you these really long receipts and at some gasoline stations they ask you if you want your receipts or not, and I like that about the gasoline stations. The last way is recycling paper and use energy instead.

Saving paper really helps our environment,and animals. Also around the world we use 1 million tons of paper every day, that’s a lot !The world would feel less costly if we were to use less paper.
