Why is reusing better than recycling?

Donít stop recycling, but do consider reusing (basically, try to lengthen the life of an item). Recycling, as we generally know it, requires reprocessing an item so that it becomes a new raw material, (which requires a certain amount of energy just to do so), and then using it to create a new product. There are some items, such as glass bottles, which can be considered good materials for reusing. In a sense, reusing is the prime objective in recycling. The economic and environmental impacts of recycling are complex, there are many arguments out there, but as the scientific findings will certainly continue to evolve, so should we.
