Plastics are organic materials, just like wood, paper or wool. The raw materials used to produce plastics are natural products. The term “plastic” is derived from the Greek word “plastikos“, meaning fit for moulding.
Three R’s Principle:-
Reduce, reuse and recycle-all help to reduce down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources ,landfill space and energy. The three R’s save land and money communities must to dispose of in landfills. Siting a new landfill have become difficult and more expensive due to environment regulations and public opposition.Coming to the problem plastic disposal,” recycling” playing crucial role otherwise ,the excess pollution takesplace which leads to threat harmful diseases.So we have to make Sure that recycling is one of the helpful one.
Recycling:- A step to reduce pollution
Recycling is a series of steps that takes a used material and processes, remanufactures, and sells it as a new product. Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution . As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.
Why recycling is Important:-
When we recycle ,used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources.If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw materials from 🌎Earth, through mining and forestry. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future.
Recycling saves energy:- Using recycled materials in the manufacturing processes uses considerably less energy than that required energy for producing new products from raw materials -even when comparing all associated costs including transport ete, Plus there are extra energy savings because more energy is required to extract refine, transport and process raw materials are ready for industry compared with providing industry- ready materials.
