Recycling is the responsibility of the conscious consumer. We have one Earth and it is our task to preserve it. In our society we consume a massive amount of bottled beverages especially in the summer. You can help individually by recycling plastic bottles simply by placing them in clear plastic bags. These bags can be also discarded in the trash. These bags in many townships are separated on conveyor belts at refuge plants.
Why clear plastic bags? (black or dark colored bags are often considered regular trash). Clear plastic bags filled with recyclebles even when thrown in the normal trash are mostly recycled and transformed into recycled units; instead of being transformed into green-house gases that contribute to global warming.
The Earth is the Lord‘s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Psalm 24:1
