The earth, as we know it, is slowly becoming a landfill. Mountains of garbage are accumulating everywhere. Garbage is accumulating not only on land but in the ocean as well. If this continues the earth itself will become a giant landfill. The air will become greatly polluted as well as the water. These unhealthy habits must change. One healthy way to reduce the large amount of garbage on earth is to recycle. Although it may be easier to just throw a bottle or soda can into a trash, as many lazy Americans do, recycling those items can be very beneficial. What everyone knows but refuses to address is that recycling is a healthy habit, not just for us but for the world. One reason that many people don’t recycle is because their neighborhoods don’t offer it. Many Americans would also rather just throw their recyclable items in the trash because they are too lazy to take it to a recycling bin. Recycling can create many jobs and in time improve the economy. Recycling can also save natural resources, save energy, reduce pollution and conserve landfill space. In order to save the earth, the world needs to recycle more. It should be mandatory that every community in the world has an area for recycles. Garbage companies could even hire people to go through garbage and pick out the recyclable items. Saving natural resources is one of the many things recycling can accomplish. “Making products with recycled material slows the depletion of non-renewable resources such as metal, oil and natural gas, and reduces the encroachment of new mining and drilling operations” (Zody,2011). Salvaging metal from soda cans is one way of saving natural resources. The salvaged metal from the soda cans is melted down then eventually made back into a soda can. “Aluminum is a sustainable metal and can be recycled over and over again” (Cummings, 2007). Saving soda cans also reduces the amount of oil that the United States uses. “In 2003, 54 billion cans were recycled, saving the energy equivalent

Can We Say "NO" To Recycling
Dr. Nadia El-Kholy. English 113. Tamer Wadid Shalaby. Final Draft Paper.
Lately the earth's capacity to tolerate exploitation and absorb solid wastes
disposal has diminished, due to excess trashing. People dispose lots of stuff,
and simply do not care. Therefore scientists found out a way to reuse things and
that process was called "recycling". This new approach seemed quite successful
at the beginning, until its true identity appeared. Recycling first started as
Soda can calorimeter(Energy content of food)
We, human needs energy to live and for movements. Thus, we eat and combust food to release its heat energy in our bodies. In this experiment, we will determine how much heat energy released when we eat snack foods such as popcorn or potato chips. This lab includes three burning tests of different foods with different energy contents. Calorimetry is the science associated with determining the….
Soda Tax Is Not the Solution
There has been a growing concern towards the issue of obesity and efforts were made by governmental and non-governmental organizations to tackle this health problem. New York City’s proposal for labeling regulations for the food and beverage industry marked the start of government intervention into the market to fight obesity, and many states soon followed suit (Brownell et al., 2012, p. 384). A recent tax proposal on sugary beverages has caused uproar among the beverage….
not what the other companies understand, and they should label that it is harmful and show it clearly to the customers, to let the customers know that they are taking their own risk. Another solution is that they can reduce the sugar in a soda and try to come up with a healthy and tasty soda that the individuals will love, that way they could gain more costumers and it would be a great success for those companies.….
Recycling is a process to change materials (waste) into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for "conventional" waste disposal, and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to plastic production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce….

Don’t litter, it makes the world bitter!
Recycle your bottles, cans, plastic and paper. Do not litter them; they can be used in some other way.
