  • Cuts the time and money spent on complex waste management processes.
  • Prevents or reduces air and water pollution and improves our health.
  • Conserves precious natural resources, since fewer raw materials need to be extracted and processed.
  • Saves energy.
  • Makes us more sustainable because we are borrowing less materials and energy from our children’s future.

Remember, if you are not buying recycled — you’re not really recycling! Check package and product labels to see if they are made with recycled or recyclable materials.
