  • Global Warming And Recycling




  • Recycling saves energy because of several factors. Less transportation is necessary, as virgin materials do not need to be acquired and transported long distances. The manufacturing process is often much simpler and requires less heat to melt or reprocess the materials.


  •   Did you know ?


* Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for three hours.


* A 60-watt light bulb can be run for over a day on the amount of energy saved by recycling 1 pound of steel. In one year in the United States, the recycling of steel saves enough energy to heat and light 18,000,000 homes! It takes 60% less energy to recycle steel than it does to make it from raw materials.
