A representation of what should be recycled

A lot of people usually skip out on recycling, but is it a better thing for the world if recycling is a mandatory task instead of a suggested thing? 

There are many reasons for recycling. But the most important reason for recycling is because of the things it could do to save the organisms on our planet. 

Recycling can be a healthy act for our environment because a lot of animals could mistake a can or a plastic bag for food. They’ll eat it and it could cause harm to them. If recycling was a law, animals would be a lot safer, for example, sea turtles would mistake a plastic bag for food, causing them to suffocate.

Recycling is a really good thing to do to help clean our planet and protect the organisms on our planet. If we don’t recycle, we are really just causing harm to ourselves by causing the extinction of important animals and plants. That’s why recycling should be mandatory instead of an optional task.
