    I think there are several good reasons why we should recycle. One is I think it is really cool. We have developed ways to make our existence on earth more sustainable, and it is pretty cool that we have figured out ways to turn our waste into something we can use again. Second, and most important, our earth does not have enough resources for us not to recycle.  There is no way we could continue to use the wood from forests and other natural products with the speed we have and hope that life could still exist.  Deforestation is wiping out habitats and putting in danger the delicate balance of our ecosystem.  If we would stop recycling, our earth would eventually become a trash heap with little natural space left. 

    I think we need to recycle to ensure that future generations are able to exist on this planet and enjoy the majesty the mountains and oceans have to offer.

    Recycling helps conserve on the consumption of resources, energy and space used in landfills. Recycling 1 plastic bottle not only saves anywhere from 100 to 1000 years in the landfill but also saves the environment from emission in producing new bottles as well as the oil used to produce that bottle. For every ton of plastic that is recycled we save the equivalent of 2 people’s energy use for 1 year, the amount of water used by 1 person in 2 month’s time and almost 2000 pounds of oil
