Environment Recycling
Recycling helps to keep a lot of waste out of our landfills while reducing natural resource depletion. Not a catch-all solution, we need to ascertain that the cure is not worse than the problem. We need to be sure that the recycling process is not a drain on other types of resources nor a toxic waste/pollutant process in and of itself.
