Ok, So Recycling can be pretty boring… but if you give a hoot about the planet, here’s some encouragement. It’s no joke that our planet could be facing a bleak future if we don’t do our part, but many still don’t recycle believing that its a wasted effort. We’re here to prove that this isn’t true by asking questions like; Was recycling introduced to reduce waste? Does compost just biodegrade anyway? Are recycled goods more expensive? Is recycling financial viable? Does recycling consume more energy than it saves? and more! So check out these myths as we debunk them.

    5. Recycling was invented to reduce wartime waste of resources. Industry regulation had nothing to do with it.

    mechanical engineer here: fun fact about recycled plastic – its a shit show.

    Here's the deal: You need 'clean' plastic when making new plastic stuff, like water bottles and whatnot. Recycling requires taking existing plastic and melting it down. this makes that plastic dirty – there'll be ash, slag and other trace elements in it – this makes it shittier plastic.

    you cannot mix recycled and 'clean' plastic without turning it into contaminated shitty plastic, that has poorer properties and will simply add even more contaminants into the 'cycle' if recycled.

    The best thing to do, if you want nice, clean and long-lasting plastic products is to have your old plastic trash incinerated or otherwise done away with. You gain nothing by re-using plastic, unless you're happy with sub-par plastic that doesn't work as well, isn't as strong, isn't as flexible, is discolored and so on…

    oh sure, if someone invents a way to completely break down plastic back into raw oil or some other kind of carbon mush, which can then be reinserted into a production pipiline on par with clean plastic raw materials, then we'll be fine and dandy.
