This very enlarged photo of an Amoeba is important in understanding why Recycling is important.
Amoeba have eating habits similar to our children. Our Children for the most part do not like spinach and will avoid eating it. Amoeba don’t like plastic bottles or any petrochemical product and avoid it like the plague. Consequently plastic bottles stay in the ground for hundreds of years spoiling the environment.
