Many children think that recycling paper is a waste of time. But it isn’t correct. It is a fact that less energy is needed to make new paper from recycled paper and less materials are used. When a lot of people recycle their paper, a lot of trees are saved and the forest and its wildlife is protected. Because when forests are cut, fewer animals have homes. Every year an area of rainforest the size of Wales is cut down and a lot of animals disappear. Besides, it is necessary to understand that when the rainforest is destroyed, it causes global warming.
It’s good when children are taught about the environment from a young age. Then they understand that everyone can make a difference to their community, their town and the world.
