*Can help maintain the enviroment for future generations.

*Aluminum cans are unique,in 60 days a can is recycled, turned into a new can & back on store shelves.

*Aluminum is a sustainable metal and can be recycled over and over again.

*In 2003, 54 billion cans were recycled, saving the energy equal to 15 million barrels of crude oil America’s entire gas usage for one day.
Each year more and more landfills are being opened up to handle the garbage that people are throwing out. The more garbage we send to these landfills, the more chances we have of increasing the greenhouse gases that are affecting the environment. The best way to become eco-friendly and help protect our environment is by recycling. Recycling is the process of taking some of our garbage and re-use it again and again. This helps to eliminate the problem of landfill areas becoming filled with junk that could harm the soil as well as the environment. Now here is a diagram of a modern landfill. Recycling is sort of like exercising: we all know we should do it, but not all of us do it as often as we shouldand some of us don’t do it at all.
However, there are lots of reasons why you should make an effort to recycle as much as possible. Studies show that 60% to 75% of garbage in landfills can be recycled. That means that if everybody recycled, we’d have 60% to 75% less garbage in our landfills Do you have recycling bins? If not you should deffinitley get some and help us save our planet earth :).
