RECYCLING FACTS:

The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle can run a 100-watt light bulb for four hours or a compact fluorescent bulb for 20 hours.

 

It also causes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution that when a new bottle is made from raw materials.

The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year!

Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour!

The U.S. is the #1 trash-producing country in the world at 1,609 pounds per person per year. This means that 5% of the world's people generate 40% of the world's waste.

Mining and transporting raw materials for glass produces about 385 pounds of waste for every ton of glass that is made. If recycled glass is substituted for half of the raw materials, the waste is cut by more than 80%.

TOP 10 REASONS TO RECYCLE:

1. GOOD FOR OUR ECONOMY
American companies rely on recycling programs to provide the raw materials they need to make new products.

2. CREATES JOBS
Recycling in the U.S. is a $236 billion a year industry. More than 56,000 recycling and reuse enterprises employ 1.1 million workers nationwide.


3. REDUCES WASTE

The average American discards seven and a half pounds of garbage every day. Most of this garbage goes into to landfills, where it's compacted and buried.

4. GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Recycling requires far less energy, uses fewer natural resources, and keeps waste from piling up in landfills.


5. SAVES ENERGY

Recycling offers significant energy savings over manufacturing with virgin materials. (Manufacturing with recycled aluminum cans uses 95% less energy.)

6. PRESERVES LANDFILL SPACE
No one wants to live next door to a landfill. Recycling preserves existing landfill space.

7. PREVENTS GLOBAL WARMING
In 2000, recycling of solid waste prevented the release of 32.9 million metric tons of carbon equivalent (MMTCE, the unit of measure for greenhouse gases) into the air.

8. REDUCES WATER POLLUTION
Making goods from recycled materials generates far less water pollution than manufacturing from virgin materials.

9. PROTECTS WILDLIFE

Using recycled materials reduces the need to damage forests, wetlands, rivers and other places essential to wildlife.

10. CREATES NEW DEMAND
Recycling and buying recycled products creates demand for more recycled products, decreasing waste and helping our economy.
