What does recycling a single glass bottle get you? You could power a 100-watt light bulb for up to 4 hours. You would also power a television for 20 minutes. Now imagine if everyone in the country recycled a glass bottle today? That would be an amazing amount of energy saved. Swapping out recycled glass for half the amount of glass made from raw materials can reduce pollution by up to 80%.
Where else can you recycle? Candy. That foil wrapper that Hershey’s Kisses comes in is totally recyclable. Most of the other candy wrappers can also be recycled. Check those labels. They might be using recycled packaging already. What about newspapers? Recycling one run of a newspaper can save 75,000 trees. If everyone recycled all their newspapers, then we could probably save up to 250,000,000 trees each year.
Not a lot of effort to drop your newspapers into a recycle bin, right? But why stop there? You can also recycled flyers, junk mail, letters, bills, and packaging from food items are all everyday paper-made things you could be recycling instead of throwing in the garbage. That will all have a huge impact on the environment.
