Consequences of not recycling:


Is the increase in global average temperature, caused mainly by the gases carbon dioxide and other air pollutants accumulate in the atmosphere like an increasingly thick layer, trapping the sun's heat and causing global warming. The main sources of contamination by the emission of carbon dioxide are power generation plants based on coal, as issued 2.500 million tons per year.
