Recycling the World

By Sophie Vargas & Marlon Noguera

The students from Semillas del Mundo completed a Learning Based Project that motivated them to share their knowledge with the community. The project consisted of recycling, reusing and reducing material.

We as humans should start caring more and improving on recycling. Did you know how much garbage we produce everyday? 4.3 pounds per person, which is 200 million tons per day, and only one quarter of that is recycled. 50 billion cans, 27 billion glass bottles, and 65 million plastics are thrown away every year. According to our research it takes 100-400 years for the trash to decompose. So, instead of throwing away all that amount of trash, reduce it, reuse it and recycle it.

Reducing can make your life easier and also help the earth. Reducing is making things smaller in size, amount and number For example, instead of throwing 7 plastic bags away you could make those 7 bags into 1 and it'll be less pollution to the world. There are many modern families that are reducing material that we produce.

Reusing is another way in which we could contribute to helping the environment. You could also practice these next steps at home. Plastics such as bottles could be reused like containers of water. Another idea is using all your organic waste from your kitchen to produce compost. “Remember, trash to someone could be gold to others.”

 

In the world right now, a fortune in recyclable materials are being thrown into landfills and are being burned. Instead of the growing uses for these materials, trash disposal remains the largest problem for the world. With the damage of natural resources and the increase of landfills, recycling has become a huge worldwide concern. By recycling, we can cut back pollution and sustain the amount of natural resources and energy we use. We should start recycling more and make a difference.

Nosara has many pollution problems, and we have a few options. One is going to the recycling center on the road between Arenales and Nosara and the other one is to take the recyclable waste to the Nosara dump where they also recycle. These are the options we should take the next time we need to recycle. In these recycling sites, the material will be sorted, and the best thing about it is that it is free and you give business to the recycling people.
