Benefits of recycling oil

Many people do not know it but the fact is that waste of cooking oil that we throw down the sink is harmful as it pollutes the oceans.

The mere simple habit of discarding the oil with which we fry is harmful since it ends up in the sea forming a superficial film on it that prevents both the passage of sunlight and the exchange of oxygen in the atmosphere of marine life.

This impenetrable layer grows as we pour more cooking oil down the sink, forming a larger and larger stain in the sea.

In fact, environmental organizations, such as Oceana, warn about the average oil residue per year that for a family of 4 members is between 18 and 24 liters, a more than worrying figure if we count the number of inhabitants of each country.

However, the recycling offers the option of largely solving this problem. By recycling cooking oil (and car oil), you can get greener fuels like biodiesel, with which double benefits are obtained: on the one hand, the biodiversity of seas and oceans and, on the other hand, the conservation of the environment by avoiding the consumption of fossil fuels such as gasoline or diesel.

Recycle used oil It is simple, it is one of the many things that we can take to clean points when we already have a good amount accumulated in jugs. There are many clean points and there will be more and more so that the communities always have one nearby, even clean points mobile so that we do not have to move from home.

Another option for those who like craft activities is to make soaps with used oil, there are many recipes on the Internet and there is also a simple method on the Internet to solidify it and make it easier to handle it to take it to the clean point.
