Recycling Plastic is a Win-Win

When you throw a plastic bottle in the trash, what do you think happens to it? These bottles do not dissolve and will be on our planet forever!! The garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean is broken pieces of plastic that harms sea life, and probably poisons us. According to the MPCA, Minnesota recycles only 25% of its plastic bottles. Why individuals still throw recyclables in the trash is beyond comprehension, especially when most of us just need to haul recyclables out to our curb a few times a month. As responsible citizens of our earth we must do better, and communities need to install recycle containers beside the trash containers like Duluth has done!
An incentive: By recycling your bottles and cans you help generate needed funds for local and state governments. You help create materials that can be made into new products which stimulates manufacturing jobs. Using recyclables instead of raw materials can reduces costs for manufacturers, and then lower costs for you, a win-win situation!
First, reduce your waste( reusable containers), but then recycle everything you can!
