Conserves water and precious natural resources – since less natural resources need to be extracted from the earth and processed. Saves energy – In 2003, EPA reported the energy savings from recycling in the US accounted for roughly 1,486 trillion Btu in energy savings – an amount equivalent to the consumption of 11.9 billion gallons of gasoline or 256 million barrels of crude oil. By using less natural resources and using less energy we reduce greenhouse gas emissions. How to start recycling Recycling is easy and important!
