First and foremost, recycling could prove to be an interesting solution. It can be defined as the reprocessing of materials into new products. Recycling prevents useful material resources from being wasted, reduces the consumption of raw materials as well as reduces energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions.

The Statement of the International Paper Company stated that "if everyone recycled his newspaper each day, it would save 41,000 trees." People could start recycling textile clothing as well. Such kind of recycling is nowadays moving from developed countries like the United Kingdom to developing ones. The desired order for environmental sustainability must be deeply ingrained. Reduce recycle and reuse.
