Why use synonyms in transcript vs what is actually stated?

There are two examples of synonyms being used in the transcript, instead of the exact words articulated in the video:

1) À quoi ça sert de "recycler" ses déchets? À quoi ça sert de "trier" ses déchets?

2) Sans doute, mais c'est "quand" même très utile. Sans doute, mais c'est "tout" même très utile.

Why?

Thanks Drew, have flagged it up. In the second one I actually think he says :

C'est tout de même très utile 

but it's not clear in the video...
