Save Resources - Over a ton of natural resources are conserved for every ton of glass recycled, including 1,300 pounds of sand, 410 pounds of soda ash, 380 pounds of limestone, and 160 pounds of felspar. Glass does not require the use of petroleum in its manufacturing process.
Cuts CO2 Emissions - For every six tons of recycled container glass used, a ton of carbon dioxide, a green house base, is reduced. A relative 10% increase in cullet reduces particulates by 8%, nitrogen oxide by 4%, and sulfur oxides by 10%.
Glass - recycles endlessly with no loss in quality or purity and has the highest level of recycled content.
