GLASS BOTTLES AND JARS
All glass bottles are made from materials such as sand, soda ash and recycled glass.
Why should you recycle glass?
Recycling a bottle/jar would save enough energy to power a fluorescent light bulb for seven hours straight!
The Glass Recycling Company states that for every ton of waste used to manufacture new glass, 1.2 tons of natural resources are saved in the process.
By taking the transportation and processing of the glass into account, for every ton of glass made out of recycled glass, 670kg of CO2 emissions are saved.
You can get a return fee when you return certain bottles.
What is it recycled into?
Your glass is recycled into new glass products.
