Recycled glass saves 5 percent energy compared to the production of virgin glass
Recycling of one glass container saves enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours.
Recycled glass generates 20 percent less air pollution and 50 percent less water pollution.
One ton of glass made from 50 percent recycled materials saves 250 pounds of mining waste.
Glass can be reused an infinite number of times; over 41 billion glass containers are made each year.
