As we know, when senior students graduate from school, most of their textbooks, which are still in good condition are thrown away. What a great waste it is! Thus, here comes a heated debate on whether we should recycle textbooks.
Some people are the opponents because they think there is a danger for students when using the recycling textbooks with many bacteria on them, which are bad for children’s health. Furthermore, notes on the pages made by the students may disturb the next users. As for Printing Industry, Publishing Industry and other related ones, it is a big loss in making profits.
On the other hand, however, many more people think recycling textbooks is a good suggestion, which I quite agree to. For one thing, recycling textbooks can save a lot of natural resources and reduce waste. Besides, a cut in the expenses means less stress for the parents, especially for those relatively less rich ones. And for students, it is also a useful way to develop a good habit of reading and taking care of books, to cultivate the sense of social responsibility of valuing common property and promote the awareness of treasuring natural resources. As a matter of fact, recycling textbooks is very popular with some foreign countries such as Australia, which has set a good example to us.
Therefore, recycling textbooks is not only necessary but also helpful.
