Glass
Producing glass from virgin materials requires 30 percent more energy than producing it from crushed, used glass.
The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle will operate a 100-watt light bulb for four hours.
It takes approximately 1 million years for a glass bottle to break down at the landfill.
