Recycle Today for a Better Tomorrow!

February 10, 2008

We hear all of the time that we should recycle to help protect the environment but how much do we really know about recycling?

For instance did you know that approximately 40% of the waste in the United States comes from paper but Americans only recycle about 25%-30% of paper products? This adds up to destroying close to 30 million trees a year just on newspapers!

And those Styrofoam cups that you use to drink your coffee out of every morning? You could circle the Earth more than 400 times with the amount of those cups that are used every year!

Those glass bottles that you throw away? They’ll still be there 1000 years from now!

Did you know that if you recycled just one aluminum can a day that you could save enough to run your television for 3 hours?

In the United States one in every six trucks is a garbage truck! With the amount of waste that is thrown away is it any wonder that landfills are closing up at the rate of approximately 2 per day in the United States alone?

Did you ever stop to think what is going to happen to us at that rate? Where will we be living 100 years from now when all of the Earths surface is just one big landfill?

Do you want to see your future generations with no place to go except on a big pile of trash? True, we probably won’t be here by that time, but they will be our future families none the less and if you don’t want your family to live on a landfill now, then why would you want your family of the future living on a big landfill?

If everyone would recycle just a little bit then we can begin to protect our Earth for the generations to come, it’s better for the environment and helps to prevent global warming also.

By starting to recycle now, you can teach the children good habits that they can pass on to their children and their children’s children so that your family and our Mother Earth can indeed have a future!

Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and this time…Do Tell a Soul!

    Since I don’t know exactly what type of recycling business you have in mind, and if I did I would suggest that you look to someone that could inform you much better than I due to the legal requirements but I did find this search page that can maybe give you some more information on different types of recycling businesses.

    Congratulations in such a worthy adventure and of course I wish you Good Luck!

    Rock on ! when im older i going to open mass factories and start a manual electrical gym exercise for the homeless. this produces better and green electricity, and also solves the homeless problem in major cities. and yes i will give them food and water and a bed to sleep on. and if it becomes successful, ( with the right founding as well! ), i would start to take my project world wide. providing electricity to even the smallest and poorist of countries. the the major thing is, i’m only 14 years old. and if i can think of something so grand like that then i’m bound to find my-self in a very wealthy lifestyle.

      I think it does not matter if you are 14 or 114 years old, the main thing is you are beginning to think about it Now. While I applaud you for your endeavor, this one has already been thought of and being used in some 3rd World countries even as we speak.

      I personally would be looking towards the betterment of Mankind unselfishly rather than how rich I could be. As the old saying goes;

      “Build it and they will come”

      I personally think If you provide the type of service that you are thinking of Without personal gain in mind…then some how, some way, it will definitely come Your way!

      Good Luck! I wish you all the best, and at 14 you will surely have a lot coming your way! 😉

      Extinction is Forever!
