  1. 1. RECYCLING
  2. 2.  Everybody already knows that recycling is reusing raw materials from waste materials.  Recycling has got 3 basic principles (RRR): -reduce -reuse -recycle
  3. 3.  Most common waste materials for recycling are paper, metal, plastic, glass, electrical and electronic waste and compost.
  4. 4.

So for example, if we recycle one glass bottle we can save enough energy for one light bulb of 100W to produce light for 4 hours.
  5. 5.  And we also need to know that recycling is not the best solution for glass, we could spend so much less energy and natrual resources if we use returnable packaging.
