Recycling
Sep 27, 2012

Hey guys! I've recently just finished my Gold Award Project for Girl Scouts on recycling. After going to so many of my brother's baseball games, I noticed how many bottles and cans were thrown away or left on the ground instead of recycled. I worked to contact public figures in my home town to have them approve putting in recycling bins in my sports fields and in the center of my town. After meeting in front of the Board of Selectmen and speaking with them about my project, it was approved and I was given funding to buy bins to put throughout town. Doing this project has shown me all the awful affects we have on the planet. Cans can easily be turned into a new can after 6 weeks instead of being thrown away and staying in a landfill for years. So much of what we throw away can be recycled. We us 500 million straws in the US, and a lot of that ends up on beaches and in the ocean. Birds have been found to feed their chicks bottle caps as food and turtles are dying from eating plastic bags when they mistaken them for jelly fish. I'm hoping that with my project, I not only make a difference in my town, but can teach others the importance of recycling and to encourage everyone to do it!

At the moment recycling of materials is only a minor activity to make us think that we are doing enough to live sustain-ably. We only recycle about 10% of the materials that could be recycled if we really meant business.
Governments need to legislate to force producers to make products with recycling built into the product life cycle process. If this was done we could lift the recycle rate to at least 80 to 90%.
But as always, humanity will have to wait until the problem seriousness is at the eleventh hour before we do anything. The real culprit here is the fact that the world is NOT run by Governments, it is run by Corporations!!!

I believe that recycling should be a more serious or important factor to the world. The products that are not being recycled is affecting our planet and the president should make recycling worth more than 10 percent. If recycling is brought to people as major problem we can save the waste and the world.

To keep our enviornment healthy and clean recycling is very important factor. government should be support such projects which are working on recycling. It gives double benefits to the envoirnment one is use garbage as raw material and reduce plution from enviornment.

It seems true. Governments are to be watching and assessing the corporations for sustainability.
