They inevitably continue to grow, but we could do more recycling to slow down the growth rate of these landfills. There are other things we can do to cut down the expansion of landfills. One solution is called light weighting. This is when we still make the same item but we use less material. For example, plastic milk jugs have gone from 68 grams to 51 grams.
Future possibilities and environment benefits, there’s a study that it lessen the air pollution by using it. Abundant domestic production, increased resale value and more affordable maintenance. As evidenced in the Environment Protection Agency, natural gas as the cleanest fossil fuel was used in many ways to help reduce the emissions of pollutants into the environment. Burning natural gas than other fossil fuels emits fewer harmful pollutants and increase the reliance on potentially reduces emission of those many harmful pollutants. The use of natural gas does not significantly contribute in the formation of the smog as it emits lower nitrogen oxide and doesn’t have particulate matters.
The process of recycling paper instead of making it from new materials generates seventy-four percent less air pollution and uses fifty percent less water. Recycling steel and tin cans saves seventy-four percent of the energy used to make them. These are some of the direct benefits of recycling. Therefore, as part of human society we must consider taking these measures as soon as we can. But, to what extend are we doing that?
