Does recycling help combat climate change?

The answer is not so simple, but let's make it more didactic.

By recycling some material, we help reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, where it can release methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

Furthermore, recycling also has a positive impact on energy savings. By recycling, we reduce the need to extract and process new raw materials, which in turn reduces greenhouse gas emissions from new production.

 So yes, recycling helps combat climate change.

For example, according to a US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report, using recycled plastic can reduce the environmental impact of energy and emissions by more than 50%.

For other recyclable materials, such as paper and aluminum, this reduction can reach 75 or even 80%.

Recycling is essential, and it is a collective mission.

Therefore, it is important that everyone actively participates in recycling and supports policies that promote sustainable practices. Only in this way will we overcome the environmental and humanitarian crises that are happening.

Today, on World Recycling Day, we want to extend an invitation: Would you like to dispose of waste correctly?

Starting at home, separating recyclable items (paper, plastic and metal) from organic ones, already contributes a lot to the entire process. ♻️
