FIT Food 4U is all about saving the planet and going as green as we can to do our bit for the environment! We are going to be doing our part by dropping our plastic lids and replacing them with a cardboard sleeve.
There are three key factors when thinking about how to recycle – The 3 R’s:
Reduce | Reuse | Recycle
Recycling is very important as waste has a huge negative impact on the natural environment. Harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses are released from rubbish in landfill sites. Recycling helps to reduce the pollution caused by waste.
Habitat destruction and global warming are some the effects caused by deforestation. Recycling reduces the need for raw materials so that the rainforests can be preserved.
Huge amounts of energy are used when making products from raw materials. Recycling requires much less energy and therefore helps to preserve natural resources.
