The importance of recycling is undeniable. That beautiful field you pass by on your way to work? Soon it might be covered in trash. Or that gorgeous waterfront you pass by on your way to work? One day it might be overflowing with pollution if we don’t make a change, and fast. According to the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), “Recycling 75% of the nation’s waste will create nearly 1.5 million jobs by 2030, while significantly reducing pollution, saving water and energy, and building economically strong and healthy communities.” Seems like a no brainer. And yet, people still don’t know how many things you can recycle.
