The Truth About Recycling

By:Noah Fields

Recycling is a beneficial way to save natural rescources. Americans discard 1.4 million tons of aluminum cans a year but only 45% is recycled. 940,000 tons of plastic drink bottles are discarded a year but only 31% is recycled. We could save 96% of energy by recycling aluminum cans and reduce demand for aluminum. We could also save 76% of energy on bottles. So why isnt the American government mandating recycling not only to save recources and energy but to reduce the trash in landfills. So do your part for your world and recycle
