Recycling helps save energy. If you recycle one glass bottle, it saves enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours, power a computer for 30 minutes, or a television for 20 minutes. Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a 55-inch HDTV to watch your favorite movie. Stanford recycled, composted, and otherwise source reduced 62% of its waste and reduced landfill by 35%.
Recycling is a $200 billion industry in the U.S. Recycling generates 7-10 more jobs that landfills and waste to energy plants. Recycling properly creates valuable resources for U.S. manufacturing and can become a highly valuable export to countries such as China and India.
We all know we should recycle, what we may not know is how a little effort we make can help reduce the impact of climate change in a big way.
