Empowering young people to take responsibility for their own future is not only desirable: it is a crucial feature of their education. The more we do within our communities, the more we can achieve. Recycling is a key component in making a difference, moving us that little bit closer the saving our planet as we know it.
Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.
