Waste disposal - the current most environment-friendly method
Of all the waste disposal methods, recycling is regarded as the most effective current method. Recycling serves to transform waste into products of their own genre through industrial processing. It is environmentally friendly to reuse the wastes instead of adding them to nature.
However, recycling technologies are complex and costly. The recycling operations themselves are not environmentally friendly.
What about composting and biodegrading?
Does recycling help the environment or are we just going around in circles?
One of the original goals of the recycling movement was to avert a supposed crisis as the nation’s landfills were running out of space and to reduce carbon emissions and the greenhouse gases as we reduce the need to manufacture new products, hence less mining, drilling and logging. But because more and more materials types have been added to the recyclable list, the process has become more complex and expensive than expected. In addition, recycling, especially of plastic waste mitigates carbon impacts only to a limited extent.
One to one with a Tree – a personal relationship
What’s your relationship with a tree?
We are not talking about tree hugging, though hugging trees is good for your health as it increases your levels of oxytocin hormones which helps you feel calm, happy and promote emotional bonding.
We are talking about a relationship which most of us take for granted and yet is so crucial to our very existence.
