Every family in the UK uses around 500 glass bottles and jars a year on average. Recycling and upcycling used glass reduces space in landfills that would otherwise be used by bottles & jars, etc. Experts think it can take up to a million years to break down in a landfill.
Recycling glass is just one way you can make a difference when it comes to reducing pollution and waste – it reduces emissions, consumption of raw materials and saves energy. Over a ton of natural resources are saved for every ton of glass recycled. Recycling glass reduces air pollution by 14-20%, water pollution by 50% and saves 25-32% more energy than making glass from raw materials.
So toast next time using upcycled glass tumblers! Not only they look cheerful, they will make you and our planet more cheerful too.
