The truth is that recycling is good both for manufacturers and consumers. On one hand, manufacturers benefit from it because recycled source materials are often cheaper than virgin ones. On the other, consumers save money through recyclables that companies are willing to pay for, such as copper and aluminum. It’s even easier to save money through reusing objects. Using homemade compost is a way to save money (it’s obviously cheaper than buying commercial compost). The recycling cause saves us money and it ultimately helps the environment.
