The future: it's green, it's now
Did you know? Biodegrading in a landfill takes..
- 90 years for an aluminum can
- 700 years for a plastic bottle
- 1 million years for a glass bottle
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.
We can really accomplish a lot when we all pull together and recycle! During WWII, salvaging metal straps from corsets saved enough metal to build 2 warships!
