Before buying a product, people who recycle think of how they would reuse it. When a person doesn’t buy as many unnecessary items, they save money. Einstein stated “All that is valuable… depends on the opportunity for development…” Since there are opportunities to save money and financially help the individual, recycling becomes valuable. There are also global advantages to recycling: by recycling, people are “helping to reduce global environment damage and making this earth a better place on which to live” (9). This obvious impact is what makes recycling valuable.
According to EPA government; Recycling Basics; it states that “Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products.” Recycling has multitudinous profits. One of the biggest reasons why recycling is promoted is; as it reduces the
The result of overpopulation and recidivism decreasing, Taxpayers can focus on using their money for a better environmental issue. There are numerous environmental problems such as streets, schools, and places that can use our tax money to help our
We were asked to read two articles one was “On Buying Local” by Katherine Spriggs and the other was “What’s Eating America” by Michael Pollan. In the article “On Buying Local,” Spriggs showed a great use of logos when she stated that it was better for us to buy locally because it was better for the environment. Spriggs gives us several reasons why we should give up “a little bit of convenience” in favor of helping the environment. Farmers wouldn’t have to lose their farms to larger farms, smaller farms could be more sustainable by using natural and local resources, and there would be fewer emissions. This idea has been meeting with some opposition people worry of economic damage, but Spriggs has shown the argument and counterarguments with the proof of how the argument is flawed.
Speech Title: The Importance of Recycling General Purpose: To Inform Specific Purpose: I want to educate my audience about the importance of recycling. Introduction I. Attention Getter: (History) Love Canal- Niagara Falls, NY hooker company dump site 1920’s ,1952 school board $1 contaminated cancer; birth defects II. Statement of Significance: Recycling is critical currently if we need to leave this planet for our who and what is to come. It is useful for nature, since we are making new items from the old items which are of no utilization to us.
Similarly, recycling is a very important topic. According to the Economic Collapse “cities have started using RFID tracking chips to monitor the recycling habits of their citizens” (18 Examples of the Nanny State…). I think that this is a little unnecessary, it defiantly interferes with our basic freedoms. Nonetheless, having regulations for protecting our earth is incredibly important. Regulations Nanny States put into place for recycling are that households and businesses must have two separate garbage cans: one for trash, and one for recyclables.
Instead of committing to military service, the green party would like to create an alternative, a volunteer service to aid the environment. Also Under the community campaign is fighting for free child care as well as livable wage for families. Their free speech aspect rotates around the idea of free media (mostly to expose environmental wrong-doings). Being that the majority of foreign aid from the US goes to the military, the Green party wants the US government to instead give this money to peace-centered causes. They would also like to reform voting by ending discrimination against smaller parties, allowing equal air time (both radio and TV) for all political candidates, and adding a “ none of the above” choice to the voting ballot.
Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste. Recycling reduces the need for raw materials so that the rainforests can be preserved. It has helped in multiple ways, like bringing companies to use more recyclable materials in the products they make, thus making less trash in the landfills. Recycling is an important necessity because of the overgrowing waste, but the benefits will definitely outweigh the consequences of not doing it. Most people who burn their plastic domestic waste do not realize how harmful this practice is to their health and to the environment.
If we do not start becoming more conscious of our waste, American citizens are going to be living among trash. The amount of waste in landfills could be dramatically reduced if a few small steps were taken to help America become “green”. America is already fully aware of how to recycle and the importance of being green but not enough people take the time to separate their waste from their recyclable materials. According to the dictionary of environmental science and technology “we cannot bypass the conservation laws of mass or energy and in a world of increasing material scarcity it is important to make the best use of all resources” (“Recycling”). It is crucial that America realizes the scarcity in many materials that we use in our everyday lives.
The GatesburgGoGreen Initiative is a good idea. Americans are currently recycling in many towns and cities across the United States. We all want to improve the environment and save our landfills, but at what cost? I don 't believe we need a new law stating that we have to recycle. Everyday around our cities and towns people are recycling cans, newspaper, and plastic containers.
