Outline
General goal: to persuade. Specific goal: to persuade my audience on the importance of recycling. Topic: recycling Attention Getter: It is a small pale blue dot in the mass of our universe, on it lives everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being that ever was, lived out there lives on the small pale blue dot in an enveloping cosmic arena. That small pale blue dot is our earth and earth is the only world so far to harbor life there is nowhere else at least in the near future that are species could migrate, like it or not, for the moment earth is where we make our stand and we must do our best to preserve the only home we've ever known. One way that we can start preserving our home is focusing more on recycling. Introduction i. We all share the same earth, breather the same air, and with that we must all share the same responsibilities to protect what we have. At the rate we are moving with our growing industries, economies, and populations we must create changes to make our earth a better place to live in for us and for future generations. Our generation is advancing with every step we take technologically, mentally, and physically, and to ensure that we are always moving at a constant forward pace we must look ahead on how we can keep our earth alive and healthy. Today I'm here to convince you on how important recycling is for the success of our earth and how it will be beneficial to our lives. Thesis Statement: Today I will talk to you about why recycling is important, consequences of not recycling, and how you can recycle.

Body i. Benefits of Recycling

A. Using recycled materials in the manufacturing process uses considerably less energy than that required for producing new products from raw materials Plus there are extra energy savings because more energy is required to extract, refine, transport and process raw materials Recycling reduces the need for extracting (mining, quarrying and logging), refining and processing raw materials all of which create substantial air and water pollution.

B. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change. When we recycle, recyclable materials are reprocessed into new products, and as a result the amount of rubbish sent to landfill sites reduces. these sites produce emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. C. another benefit of recycling will create new well-paying jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries in the United States.
1. Conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals;

2. Helps sustain the environment for future generations 3. Prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials Transition: Now that I showed you the benefits of recycling I'm going to share with you the consequences of not recycling. ii. Consequences of not Recycling A. No more trees, about 50 million tons of paper are recycled annually, but this is only about half of what is produced. If there was no paper recycling, we would lose 850 million more trees a year. B. Taking the ocean over, There are already large "islands" of trash floating in the oceans. The tidal currents have collected it from around the world and it will continue to grow. Most of this trash is plastic which does not break down. C. Landfills are running out of room for waste, and some states are running out of space for landfills. If we do not recycle more, we will soon be surrounded by our own waste. D. In 2007, over 254 million tons of municipal solid waste was collected, according to the EPA. 85 million tons of that waste were recycled or composted. The amount of trash that the United States produces has tripled in the past 50 years. Transition: So I showed you how not recycling can lead to harsh consequences, now im going to show you guys how you can recycle. iii. How you can Recycle

A. Buy products that can be recycled. 1. When shopping at the supermarket, buy products that can be recycled easily such as glass jars and tin cans.

B. Buy products that have been made from recycled material. 2. You can tell if a product is eco-friendly by looking at the label on the packaging. C. Recycle bins. 3. Make sure you have a recycle bin in your home. Keep it in an obvious place so you wont forget to use it. Your local council should be able to provide you with a recycle bin that can be used for materials such as glass, paper, aluminum and plastic. Conclusion I. Thesis Statement: From the presentation my point is clear that recycling is very beneficial to our earth and not recycling can lead to some very harsh consequences, also that recycling is a relatively easy concept for all of us to do. We all share the same earth, there for we must all take the responsibility to recycle, whether it is small step as in recycling a plastic bottle, or a large step of building a recycling plant everyone step will help protect our earth.
