As the world continues to experience drastic climate change effects, more people want to go green. Pitching in to save the planet is an admirable feat that might make you feel better about the future. You’re proud of each bag that ends up in your local recycling plant, but do you know where it goes from there? People have begun to wonder if recycling is good for the environment and what really happens with their household waste.

This guide takes a deep dive into the issue so you can make informed decisions about your carbon footprint. There are many ways to reduce waste and help the planet, but they all start with a bit of research.

Is It Worth It to Recycle?

Recycling became popular when World War II made it a central part of helping the U.S. win the war. Households saved their tin cans and toothpaste tubes so they could become supplies for troops. Environmentalists saw the popularity growing and used it to pursue legislation that transformed recycling into a national environmental resource.

These are a few benefits the world gets when people recycle waste properly. They can make a big difference, even if you don’t think separating aluminum and cardboard does much for the environment.
