Is it better to recycle or reuse glass?
Before recycling, or if you live somewhere that does not recycle glass, consider reusing your glass containers. This is an easy way to reduce your contribution to landfills. While many single-use plastic bottles should not be refilled, glass containers are perfect for reuse.
How can recycling saves energy?
Extracting and processing raw resources (wood, oil, ore) to make usable materials (paper, plastic, metal) requires a lot of energy. Recycling often saves energy because the products being recycled usually require much less processing to turn them into usable materials.
Is recycled glass renewable?
Glass is 100% recyclable and reusable
This means that recycled glass is always part of the recipe for new containers. And in this ongoing bottle-to-bottle system, it can take as little as a month for a bottle to be back on the shelves. Glass can also be reused infinitely without losing quality.
