Helps Conserve the Soil
Most homes have several un-used bottles, metal, and clothes that they throw away at dumping sites or in the bushes. If you throw away these things on the soil, it will result in soil pollution. Chemical compounds in the metals and dyes in the clothes will cause leaching of the ground making the soil lose vital components. With the bottles, they will not allow for proper air circulation into the earth, killing important organisms living in the soil. When you opt for burning, you will also burn soil components; this degrades the soil.
To help save the soil, consider donating your clothes. Also, give the bottles to bottle collectors who recycle them and the metals to garage sales.

Excellent vegetation cover provides constant rainfall resulting in an ever-green surrounding. The trees will prevent soil erosion and provide adequate water catchment area. Through donations, charitable organizations will teach different groups on the importance of having a good vegetation cover.
