With December now officially underway, it’s safe to say that the season of giving is officially upon us. While you’re out doing your holiday shopping, we’d like to suggest a special way you can give back to your planet. Have you ever considered purchasing recycled products? We know, of course, that not everything on your wish list is likely to be made with reused materials. But, when possible, it’s a wonderful idea to go green!
Here are four reasons to go green this holiday season:
1. It preserves the planet’s resources.
There are many different types of products that can be recycled and reused. Surely, you’re aware that such materials as paper, plastic and glass can all be recycled. By purchasing recycled products, we ensure that the Earth’s resources aren’t being ravaged unnecessarily. Naturally, the more we recycle, the longer we are able to preserve our world’s natural resources. This, of course, also contributes to less waste.
“Unlike the sun, some resources are simply not unlimited,” affirms Arizona’s Consolidated Resources Incorporated (CRI), “Why waste precious resources on household, and personal, items, that can be simply reused? From metals to old trees, there is only so much around. When some resources are gone, they’re simply gone.”
2. It reduces energy use.
When we reduce energy, we limit the amount of carbon emissions that go into the air. They play a major role in climate change, which is often cited as the culprit behind the world’s natural disasters. By conserving energy, we also produce cleaner air. This, of course, offers us all a better quality of life. To reiterate, with a healthier planet, we can better sustain our resources. Doing so ensures that we keep both our population and Mother Nature thriving for years to come.
“Recycling one tin can saves enough energy to power a television for three hours,” explains Barnaby Nash on BarnabyThinks.com, “Whilst recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes. Whereas recycling one plastic bottle saves enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for three hours. These statistics make clear that there are many environmental benefits that come about because of the recycling process.”
3. It limits pollution.
We all know that factories emit a lot of pollution into the air when manufacturing their products. Common emissions include carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. “By purchasing recycled products, you encourage manufacturing methods that limit resource use, and energy waste, by producing items from a reusable material,” says CRI, “This ultimately restricts factory induced greenhouse gasses. All around, recycled products help to maintain a cleaner, healthier planet.”
4. It saves you money.
