Why should we recycle for children?
Every time we recycle, we save a bit more of the environment. We harvest fewer trees and consume less water and energy. All things require natural resources to develop, and our rising population’s demand for additional raw materials is straining the globe. Let’s keep our waste out of landfills and recycle as much as possible.
