Many people wonder who invented recycling, but the truth is there is no one person that can take the credit for the recycling idea. Everyone has contributed to the idea of recycling in there own way. Mother nature recycles water by evaporating it and returning it fresh, people everyday recycle clothes by handing it down to some one that may fit them and sometimes people recycle things right in there home and don’t even realize it, for instance when you finish with the butter tub and you rinsed it out and place oil in it. You have recycled the container and the oil. Recycling is a great idea and everyone should do there part to save the earth.
