8 Reasons Why You Should Buy Recycled Products

Recycling goes hand-in-hand with sustainability. And for recycling to come full circle, individuals and businesses should go beyond just recycling to also purchasing products made from recycled materials. Buying these types of reprocessed products gives your business a role in building a better world – socially, economically and environmentally.

Recycled Products

Here are 8 reasons to buy products made from recycled materials:

  1. Saves energy – For example, it takes 95% less energy to recycle an aluminum can than to create a new one.
  2. Removes fewer resources from the Earth – The supply of some natural resources are limited and can be conserved by reusing and recycling materials to make new products.
  3. Preserves precious landfill space – Using recycled materials helps reduce the amount of waste taken to landfills, conserving valuable land.
  4. Saves water – Recycling just one pound of paper can save about 3.5 gallons of water. Buying products in recycled packaging significantly reduces the amount of water used in production.
  5. Limits pollution – Producing items from a reusable material ultimately restricts factory-induced greenhouse gasses and helps maintain a cleaner, healthier planet.
  6. Encourages companies to do the right thing by making more recycled productsA demand for recycled products encourages manufacturers to participate in an environmentally healthy effort that can also boost
  7. Saves money – Reusing materials saves manufacturers money on resource output, which may save consumers money down the line.
  8. Is a valuable teaching tool for future generations – By purchasing recycled products, you’re sending a message that a healthy environment is worth the effort.
