Know what you can recycle
More people than ever are recycling and we couldn’t be happier – the glass industry love to use recycled glass when they manufacture new containers but not all types of glass can be used in production.
Those clever people at Recycle Now have teamed up with a magician to create some mind-boggling street magic tricks highlighting how glass packaging items can be transformed into new things.
Recycling glass is easy and it has big environmental pay offs. Glass recycling saves raw materials, lessens demand for energy, and cuts CO2 emissions. Most importantly, glass can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity.
Did you know that if everyone in the UK recycled all the glass used, it would save enough energy to chill 56 bottles of wine each day per household?* Or by just recycling one extra glass each a dishwasher could be powered in every household*.
Watch the ‘Recycling Magic’ for yourself now – can you see how he does it? We can’t!.
