Not many of us understand the importance of recycling…But instead of digging deeper to find solution, some try to get away with silly excuses. Here are the Top 4 excuses irresponsible people use, to avoid recycling.
I don’t create that much waste
Really? As per global data, every human being on earth produces over 600 Kgs of trash a year. So, which one is it, you are not a human or you don’t’ live on earth? From food, clothes, shelter to electronics, lighting equipment to all the plastic that it is wrapped in… everything we use, has the ability to turn into trash. So next time someone tells you they don’t create crap, tell them that their crap starts from that sentence itself.
Recycling process is very tedious
Yes, it is a tedious process. The recycler segregates the trash, puts it in massive recycling machines which than separates the plastic, metals and other items, which they package and downstream to manufacturers again…But we do not have to worry about all that, do we? We just need to keep a recycling bin in our house and once it is full, give it to the nearest recycler. Was that tedious? Well…NO!
Why should I pay for recycling?
Didn’t we just mention all the hassle a recycler has to go through to recycle? It takes manpower and massive machinery to recycle the items we provide them. But by investing in all that now, they make sure that we don’t make the environment any more inhabitable for us and our future generations. We should pay the minimal service charge to the people who are saving the environment on our behalf. Isn’t that only fair?
What is my benefit?
Our planet is already getting inhabitable with all the plastic in oceans, chemicals in land and dust in air. So, if you wish to stay happy on the planet, you need to first make the planet happy. Isn’t cleaner air, healthier soil and fresh water benefit enough? Think!
Now next time when you come across anyone who is giving excuses for not recycling…you know how to answer them. You are not one of them, are you?
