    • Every month, we throw out enough glass bottles to fill up the Empire State Building. All of these glass jars are recyclable.
    • The energy saved from recycling 1 glass bottle can run a 100-watt lightbulb for 4 hours. It also causes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water polution than when a new bottle is made.
    It takes a long time for garbage to decompose. An aluminum can that is thrown away today will still be an aluminum can 500 years from now.
    • Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours.
    • To make each week’s Sunday’s newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down.
