I will be telling you about what I learned reading 2 articles with different opinions on recycling. The first article was written by a man named William .F. Shughart who thinks we shouldn’t recycle as much as we do. The second article was written by a man named Michael Kraft. He thinks we should still recycle.
The first author, William .F. Shughart, thinks we shouldn’t recycle as much as we do. He thinks this for many reasons. One reason is the trucks that collect the recycled glass cause pollution which is bad for the environment. The second reason is that we waste water when we rinse out the things we want to recycle before we put them in the recycle bin. The third reason is that it cost less money to make the the object brand new than to recycle it. “The truth is, however, recycling has a cost, a big cost.” says Shughart.
The second author, Michael Kraft, Thinks we should recycle. He thinks this for many reasons. He thinks this because americans put way too much trash in landfills, which is very wasteful. The more trash we put in landfills, the more we pollute the earth around it. This is why Kraft thinks we should recycle still.
I think after reading the two articles that we should still recycle. We don’t have to recycle as much as we use to because, I don’t want to hurt the animals or earth around the landfill. That is why I want to still recycle.
