Benefits of Recycling
In truth, recycling produces a good number of benefits for the environment and the economy, here are just a few:
- Recycling and composting doubled from 1990 to 2000 – diverting over 700 million tons of materials away from landfills and incinerators
- When one ton of paper is recycled it saves 17 trees from being cut down
- Recycling just one glass bottle saves enough energy to burn a light bulb for four hours
- Recycling helps improve water and air quality by a reduction in ten major categories of air polutants and eight categories of water pollutants
- Recycling takes less energy than manufacturing with virgin materials which helps reduce our dependency on foreign oil.
