Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to "conventional" waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution and water pollution.
The recycling of plastic helps save a lot of energy and natural resources. Saving petroleum, water, and other natural resources help conserve the balance in nature.
