The recycling of glass bottles is increasing every year, but the amount of recycling is huge and immeasurable.
According to the glass packaging Association, the energy saved by recycling a glass bottle can make a 100 watt bulb light for 4 hours. It can make a computer run for 30 minutes and can watch 20 minutes of TV shows. Therefore, recycling glass is a significant thing.
The glass bottle recycling saves energy and reduces the capacity of the landfill. It can provide more materials for other products, including glass bottles, of course. According to the national consumer plastic bottle report on the chemical products Council of the United States, about 2 billion 500 million pounds of plastic bottles were recycled in 2009, with a recovery rate of only 28%.
