I support recycling. It is very important to saving the world. Recycling is a simple task that makes a big difference. By recycling paper, you can save a tree. For every 2,000 pounds of recycled paper, 17 trees are saved. By recycling steel(aluminum), you can save energy. For every pound of recycled steel, a 60-watt light bulb can run for more than a day. You can also recycle plastic and glass. Plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kills about 1,000 sea creatures a day. It takes over 4,000 years for glass to decompose in a landfill. Recycling one glass bottle can run a 100-watt light bulb for 4 hours. I have now made it clear that recycling is a very important task. There's a lot to recycle out there, so we need to do as much as possibe to save the planet. You can visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recycling to find out more information about recycling.
