The recycling of food waste results in the production of useful manure that can be utilized to grow additional food. It Leads to a Reduction in Waste Found in Landfills Depositing trash in landfills is generally wasteful. Moreover, landfills tend to pollute water plus soils since toxic liquids seep into them.
Recycling plastics reduces the amount of energy and resources (such as water, petroleum, natural gas, and coal) needed to create plastic. According to a 2009 study by researchers Peter Gleick and Heather Cooley from the Pacific Institute of California, a pint-sized bottle of water requires about 2,000 times as much energy to produce as the same amount of tap water.
