Did you know that glass can be recycled over and over again?
Making new glass uses lots of various raw products such as sand, limestone, feldspar not to mention heat and energy to produce products from it.
Recycled glass doesn’t use all the raw materials, and it melts at a lower temperature saving energy costs.
So next time before you go to pitch that glass bottle in the wastebasket, or toss broken shards in the trash toss them into the recycling bin instead.
