Recycling is important because it helps the earth. You may have been out shopping with your mom and dad and noticed a special symbol on some things they buy like cleaning products or garbage bags. This symbol means that a product is a recycled product.
Recycling helps the earth and makes the world a better place to live in. By recycling items you do not need any more new things to be made. By using these new recycled products you will save trees and other important natural resources because raw materials will not need to be used to produce products any longer.
There are many things that can be recycled:
• Steel products
• Rubber products
• Milk jugs
• Cell Phones
• Food and Paint Cans
By recycling unneeded products you are able to not only stop the overflow of trash but you are able to make new products. If your parents own a car and decide to get a new one, the old one can be recycled and the recycled steel can make a new car. (continued...)
