Recycling is important. We often let things that don’t immediately affect us go completely forgotten. Due to this unfortunate habit, recycling is so often put aside. It’s true that we can start recycling tomorrow. It’s true that one bottle isn’t going to ruin the world. It’s true that our world probably isn’t going to be completely destroyed in the next year.
It’s also true that the change starts with us. It’s also true that this is a change that we can directly influence. It’s also true that the United States only recycles 28% of its waste. It is true that it is time to start recycling right now.
This story follows the life of a water bottle that ends up right where it’s supposed to. It shows our journey to buy things like we do every day. It shows us at the store picking out something and then it shows us at home enjoying it. And then it shows how to finish this process in a way that will help protect our world. It shows us just how easy the whole process is and allows us time to reflect on the importance of the issue being discussed.
