There are some key environmental benefits to be gained from recycling your glass.
Every 1,000 tonnes of recycled glass that's used to make new bottles and jars will save:
- 345,000 kWh of energy
- 314 tonnes of CO2
- 1,200 tonnes of raw material
- 1,000 tonnes of landfill.
That's a whole load of resources saved just from putting your glass in a recycling bag!
