Consider in addition to saved landfill space, the reduction in greenhouse gases as manufacturing slows down, if the entire nation was to participate in a simple recycling practice.

Above and beyond, let's not forget about the methane gases produced by landfill, and reduced by our own conscious consumerism. Thus, recycling is win-win: Less manufacturing-related pollution, less methane gas causing the greenhouse effect, and an increasingly improved environment.

Thank goodness more and more people are participating nation-wide. And thank goodness people are caring more and more. There still may be some people who think that their "token" contribution to the environment will make no difference, so out of apathy they don't participate in the solution.

How wrong their assumption is!

All we have to do is google at the press of a button, and we have knowledge at our fingertips.

I have always had a motto:
"Big problems? Simple solutions".

Knowledge is power:

"Yes we can". We can help to save the earth.

This is not the only way to help, of course. I will be researching the facts about air pollution and what we can do, and will write another article with more details. My aim will be to provide statistical facts such as those above, and my hope in so doing is to give us a message that whatever we do, really does, can and will make a difference.

Here is a first article in a series devoted to this subject. Please stay tuned. And, thanks for your help!
