Recycling- The Modern World is Still Our World

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.
