Reduce, Reuse, Recycle The Three R’s To Saving Our Environment

What is recycling? Google Dictionary defines Recycling as”The action or process of converting waste into reusable material. Basically it boils down to using one item over and over again. For example plastic water bottles. Once we are finished with them we used to throw them away taking up valuable landfill space that in many areas are filling up quickly with no where to expand. This is a scary statistic.

Instead of throwing it out reuse the bottle time and time again. You can put the bottles into a recycling bin. When this bin gets full take the plastic bottles to a bottle depot to earn extra money. At times depending on the size of the bottles you can earn $30 and above.
