I believe that a national recycling plan can help save both the economy and the environment. Making recycling mandatory can save our natural resources and prevent companies from using more harsh chemicals to make plastics, styrofoam, glass, wood and metal products. Less dumping in landfills can minimize the harmful chemicals from seeping into the earth. Recycling can also make lots of money for the economy, especially when recycling metal items. 100% of soda can can be recycled as many times as needed. A national recycling plan can create thousands of jobs and bring in millions to billions of dollars in revenue a year. Pennsylvania is one state that has seen the benefits of their statewide recycling plan come full circle. There are plenty of website that show other benefits.
