Why recycle glass?
- Glass never wears out -- it can be recycled forever.
- We save over a ton of resources for every ton of glass recycled -- 1,330 pounds of sand, 433 pounds of soda ash, 433 pounds of limestone, and 151 pounds of feldspar.
- Most bottles and jars contain at least 25% recycled glass.
- Recycling one glass bottle saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours.
