We only have one Earth – and a limited amount of natural resources. Recycling conserves natural resources because less virgin materials are needed in the manufacturing process. Recycling saves energy because making items with recycled content generally requires less energy than extracting virgin materials. Recycling also saves water, as water is generally used in materials extraction and processing, and recycled materials need less processing than virgin materials.
