WHY RECYCLE GLASS

 

Glass can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity.  Glass containers returned for recycling help to make new glass bottles and jars (which can include over 95% recycled content), as well as fiberglass. Recycling glass has big environmental payoffs as well—it saves raw materials, lessens demand for energy, and cuts CO2 emissions.
