Recycling is a simple and easy task that makes a profound difference to our planet in many ways. Knowing what all the different numbers inside the iconic recycling symbol mean is an important first step in responsible recycling. Not all materials are created equally and knowing which plastics are better to use and easier to recycle will help decrease overall plastic waste.

One ton of recycled plastic saves:

5,774 kWh of elecetricity.
685 gallons of oil.
98 million Btu’s of energy.
30 cubic yards of landfill space.

Plastic takes up to 1,000 years to degrade in a landfill.
Recycling plastic takes 88% less energy than making plastic from raw materials.

Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the Earth four times.

Americans throw away 35 billion plastic bottles every year.
Only about 25% of the plastic produced in the U.S. is recycled.

If we recycled the other 75% we could save 1 billion gallons of oil and 44 million cubic yards of landfill space annually.
Using aluminum or glass containers is always preferable over plastic.

A plastic bottle of drinking water contains on average 4 cents worth of water.

By using reusable drink containers an average person can eliminate the need for 100 disposable bottles per year.

To produce each week's Sunday newspapers, 500,000 trees must be cut down.

Recycling a single run of the Sunday New York Times would save 75,000 trees.

If all our newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year!

If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we would save about 25,000,000 trees a year.

If you had a 15-year-old tree and made it into paper grocery bags, you'd get about 700 of them. A busy supermarket could use all of them in under an hour! This means in one year, one supermarket can go through over 6 million paper bags! Imagine how many supermarkets there are just in the United States!!!

The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood, and other products made from trees. This amounts to about 2,000,000,000 trees per year!

The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
Approximately 1 billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the U.S.

Americans use 85,000,000 tons of paper a year; about 680 pounds per person.

The average household throws away 13,000 separate pieces of paper each year. Most is packaging and junk mail.
