Some of the recycling facts are recycling plastic saves twice as much as energy by burning it in an incinerator. Over 1,600 businesses are involved in recycling post-consumer plastics; PET plastic can be recycled into clothing, fiberfill for sleeping bags, toys, stuffed animals, rulers and more. Only around 27% of plastic bottles are recycled, it has been estimated that recycling, re-use, and composting create six to ten times as many jobs as waste incineration and landfills.
Recycling saves 3 to 5 times the energy generated by waste-to-energy plants, even without counting the wasted energy in the burned materials. Recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of 1,000–2,000 gallons of gasoline. 66% of energy is saved when producing new plastic products from recycled materials instead of raw (virgin) materials. For every 1 ton of plastic that is recycled we save the equivalent of 2 people’s energy use for 1 year. Plastics cooling off the earth! Using plastics you will be saving lots of tree.
Important Facts about Recycling Plastic Bottles to Save Trees: Recycling plastic bottles have potential benefits beyond reducing the volume of useful materials permanently lost in landfills. If we recycle properly, we reuse resources, cutting demand for new materials. Besides reducing the use of non-renewable materials, recycling potentially can reduce pollution and greenhouse gases that damage or kill forests, oceans, and other life-sustaining ecosystems. Recycling plastic bottles save trees, it reduces acreage converted to landfills, saving forestland.
