Some dangers of not recycling include the risks to wildlife and natural resources, a decline in the economy and climate issues. By recycling more items, there are less carbon and greenhouse gas emissions, which can help protect the environment and reduce global warming.
By not recycling, people are potentially destroying natural habitats for animals, therefore putting precious wildlife at risk. In addition to this, paper recycling helps to save trees, which further protects many wildlife species that make their shelters in trees. When items are made from recycled materials, they also help to create less pollution and use less water.
