Recycling Glass

Glass is 100% recyclable. Recycling one glass bottle instead of making a new one saves enough energy to light a 100 watt bulb for 4 years. Glass produced from recycled glass instead of raw material reduces related air pollution by 20 percent and water pollution by 50 percent. Reusing glass bottles is even simpler and more environmentally friendly.

i found a good way to use old bottles is to break them up with a hammer in a zipper bag and use the pieces as mosaic pieces
