Tips from instructor:
Try to dig a bit deeper to find out what the benefits are for recycling the material you chose. Be aware of what such benefits could be, 1) reduced energy in producing the material, 2) reduced pollution, 3) reduced landfill space. Keep in mind that some materials require a lot of effort to produce. Plastic, for instance, comes from oil, which needs to be drilled, and after that there is a prolonged processing component. Cost of producing needs to be weighed against costs of recycling. It also requires energy and produces pollution to recycle materials. Sometimes recycled materials are shipped halfway across the world to be recycled, which also has an environmental cost. Lastly, be aware that recycling for some materials is not endless, the quality of the material goes down with recycling. This is why it is good to find alternative uses for some materials, especially when they are already quite degraded.
