In the article, “ To Recycle or Not to Recycle” (BTW)  I learned that recycling is great because it helps prevent the Earth from becoming one giang landfill. It might not be easy to recycle plastic water bottles. For example in some places most of the people aren’t aware of the specific recycling rules where they live. So in many cases, cities actually lose recycling programs because they don’t follow the rules, in other words, they would be better financially by recycling. 

I think that recycling is a good idea to keep the environment clean, and have a beautiful environment.  I think everyone should work together to keep our planet clean. Recycling takes time, but is worth it. Worth it because live in an environment who feel the fresh air, and live in a environment that it is clean, is one the best thing you can do to live happy. 

 Do you think recycling is good for the environment?

Thanks for your post! I completely agree that we should do whatever we can to protect our environment because it needs our help to survive.  Unfortunately, I don’t think recycling is enough to do that anymore.  I recently read an article that said that only 35% of our waste is recycled and of that recycling, only 8% is actually recycled.  The rest is sitting in landfills.  Here is the link to that article if you’re interested (  I think that switching over to biodegradable packaging and other alternatives could be even better than recycling.  Thanks again for your post!

Monica, I’m glad you brought light to this insanely important topic. Climate change is a major issue and if everyone recycled, I think we could help our planet in several ways. We need to create change to help our environment and I think that recycling is an easy way to globally take a step in the right direction. Thanks so much for sharing!

Dear Monica:

I am so interest by your post, “Recycle or not Recycle?”, because is something interesting about what can talk right now, it’s our world what it’s on dangerous for all the pollution that we made. We need to think more on our earth because is where we live and where we have the air to breath.

One sentence that your wrote is, “ I think that recycling is a good idea to keep the environment clean, and have a beautiful environment.” I think this is something important because the earth is the only place where we live. We need to make the change and help to safe our world.

Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you express your opinion.
