Here at Tamstar, we believe that if you were to do only one thing to live more sustainably for the rest of your life, it should be recycling. As a result, recycling is crucial to the future health of our planet and the conservation of natural resources. In addition, going green encourages people to reduce their consumption, recycle as often as possible and reuse items in an effort to reduce waste. Therefore, reducing waste helps the environment by decreasing the amount of material that ends up in landfills.
On the other hand, waste that ends up in landfills and the natural environment is one of the biggest issues the planet is facing. As a result, they biodegrade and release carbon dioxide which contributes to the greenhouse gas effect. Plastic waste is especially dangerous as not all plastic is safe. Some plastic products are made from harmful and toxic ingredients. In fact, even non-toxic plastics can still cause harm to the environment when it is not properly recycled. Furthermore, take 400 to 1000 years to break down. Consequently, it turns into micro-plastic as it degrades and travels in the wind and water around our planet.
