The 4 R's

By: Chaaya

There are 4 R's in the energy and real world. They are reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink. By following these rules we can be on our way to having a more "green" earth. By using more recycled matericals it can save ecosystems. Using less aluminum and bauxite ore there can be a 95% decrease in energy usage, 97% of water pollution and 95% from air pollution. I mean even recycling can help. Many things now adays are trying to be made out of recycled trash, glass and plastic.

If paper with recycled solution in paper would cut back on energy by 33%, water pollution by 35% and air pollution by 73%. Just think, if 3 people on every block recycled and used recycled paper! With everyone in the world how much energy could we save. There is no limit we have to saving energy. Recycled steel and tin cans save 74% less energy. Next time that you are drinking soda or thinking about throwing away old school assignment, recycle. Remember the 4 R's reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink.
