    Recycling: Past, Present & Future 

    Why recycle? Recycle is a process where you can reuse the material again. It’s like adding additional life to some materials. Some material can be recycled and some material can’t be. Without a recycle icon stamped is not recyclable, so therefore, it is trash.

    Past

    In the past, people bought, used, and threw items away. The amount of materials in landfills that got bigger and bigger. The cycle of buying, using, and throwing trash never stops. The amount in the landfill is so huge and it caught people’s attention and created concern for environment and its impact on other animals, air, and water.

    Present

    People are recycling aluminum cans, steel cans, newspapers, papers, cardboards, plastics, and magazines. People go online to find the latest news. Many companies urge people to sign up for paperless bills and online magazine subscriptions, but some people in the older generation buy newspaper to read, send bills via mail, and receive magazine via shipping. Kids use old cards and other recycled materials to create a recycled greeting card such as Valentine’s Day, Christmas card, and etc.

    Future

    Recycling will carry over into the future. People will have newer idea on how to improve recycling. After the older generation is gone, more people will be using online magazines, paperless bills, and paper money will be gone too. People will be carrying their own containers for water, coffee, or soda. Many art sculptures are made from recycled materials.

    Final Thought

    It is hard to believe how huge the landfill is. I think plastic is probably the biggest enemy trash in the sea, air, and the land. I think people should try to reuse a plastic container and refill with what have gone inside. This is better than throwing it away. It will eliminate recycling plastic. Keeping the landfills less is a toughest job.   Earth is your home, so keep it clean and beautiful.
