WHY DO WE RECYCLE AND HOW?
Year 2021. The Earth's population has already passed the critical threshold of 7,5 billion people; this means consumption that has exploded in recent decades, especially in industrialized and developed areas.
Consumption means comfort and a better life for many people, but for the planet it also means drained resources. Many reports from international institutions show that we're at a critical juncture, where if we fail to change the way we consume in order to become sustainable in the long run, we may face severe situations.
We need to recycle! Let's return to the production and consumption circuit materials that have value: paper, plastic, also computers, refrigerators or washing machines, of which rare and precious metals can be recovered such as iron, aluminum, copper or other metals rare and precious.
Simply put, by recycling we give the planet a breath of fresh air. Because instead of consuming the resources still available, we consume from what has already been used. Less waste, newly created jobs, more responsible people and a brighter future for our children.
It's important to note that recycling has a very important role to play in protecting the environment given that through this process are recovered substances that once infiltrated in the environment affect the ozone layer, global warming, human health, flora and fauna.
