Environmental sustainability is about conserving our natural resources and protecting our natural ecosystems so that current and future generations can live and thrive in a modern world while preserving the wonderous beauty of our planet.
While there are many steps on the path to a sustainable environment – recycling is a large part of that journey. Products are continually being produced, and we need systems – Like SARCAN – in place to handle those products once they have reached the end of their useful life. By recovering the resources and materials that are used to make these products, we are able to reuse them as opposed to mining raw materials.
This cuts back dramatically the number of natural resources taken from our ecosystems, the amount of energy needed in the manufacturing cycle, and the number of harmful pollutants entering our environment. And since we are reusing the materials instead of just trashing them, we are reducing the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills.
Every step along the way, recycling reduces our environmental footprint. Let’s dive into each of these aspects a bit deeper to see the beneficial impact of your recycling efforts.
