Recycling as a way to preserve Ukrainian forests

The German DSW Foundation estimates about 7.8 billion people live on Earth today. Every day, these billions of consumers produce millions of tons of garbage, having already accumulated about 2 trillion tons in total as of 2021. Waste poisons water, land, air, us and you, and directly affects the acceleration of global climate change. We still live as if we have a spare planet in our pocket, and it is really needed now, according to The Word  Counts. As a result, due to the overuse of the planet's resources, this year's Environmental Debt Day began a month earlier than last. The environment has been lending to the world since July 29. But what about humanity? If not return the resources, then at least not borrow more from nature? You can simply reuse all the waste we produce as a production resource. Recycling of raw materials is the main way to control the critical situation with environmental pollution and the depletion of raw materials in the world, while also receiving economic benefits.
