According to Environmental Paper Network, 2007: ' 'Making copy paper from 100% recycled content fiber instead of 100% virgin forest fibers reduces total energy consumption by 44%, net greenhouse gas emissions by 38%, particulate emissions by 41%, wastewater by 50%, solid waste by 49% and wood use by 100%".these statistics clearly show the impact of recycling. Therefore, recycling waste is very important for the environment these days. The purpose of this study is to help the environment by using recycled objects. It is very important for everyone to know that recycling can help them to get better life because the pollution will be less. Recycling can have a huge impact on the environment by reducing pollution, minimizing the threats posed by global warming, and reducing the energy consumption. One of the importance of recycling is to reduce the pollution. Recycling can help the environment and the people to reduce air pollution. According to global health organization ' ' Air pollution is reasonable for killing 2.4 million people every year around the world ' '. (Premature mortality due air pollution…show more content…
Reducing energy consumption is one of the benefits of recycling. It is important to reduce the energy consumption because producing energy takes a lot of money and manpower and in sometimes it is might damage the environment. So, it is important to reduce the energy consumption. The process of produce a new product from non-recycled materials it takes a lot of energy. But, when you using recycled materials it will take less energy than before. For example, according to the municipal solid waste company in USA, 2005:"every pound of steel recycled saves 5,450 BTUs of energy, enough to light a 60-watt bulb for over 26 hours". Also, in 2005, recycling of municipal solid waste in America reduced manufacturing energy use by more than 988,489,000 million BTUs, enough energy to power
