First, let's talk about meaning. According to the Cambridge Dictionary:
- Recyclable: "able to be recycled"
- Recycling: "the activity of treating materials or products using a special industrial process so that they can be used again"
- Recycled: "having been used before and then put through a process so that it can form a new product"
So you have to take something that is RECYCLABLE, put it through a RECYCLING process in order to get it RECYCLED.
Imagine that today someone puts together a magic trick and everything we use is recyclable, 100%. Everything. Bottles, bags, cans, jars, straws, coffee stirrers... Everything.
What happens tomorrow?
Will the content of your blue bin get 100% recycled?
Will the landfills across the USA close their doors?
To whom the responsibility will fall?
Is this enough?
