Why Recycled?

Almost every community has a recycling program and, fortunately, more households and businesses are recycling not only aluminum cans, but plastic bottles, paper products and glass
bottles. Now it’s necessary for businesses and households to choose products made from recycled materials, thus “completing the cycle.

Recycling, and utilizing products made from recycled materials, is a crucial element to smart energy use and conservation. In addition to benefiting the environment, we can make huge strides toward national energy independence by reducing our reliance on oil. This can lead to a more secure and healthy world.

Recycling goes a long way toward the inevitable and gradual shift away from fossil fuels, including coal, the dirtiest of them all. Furthermore, it helps reduce the viability of constructing and subsidizing more nuclear power plants.

Many of our products, if not made using sustainable and biodegradable materials from the start, utilize recycled materials as a renewable resource. Eco Spun® is fiber spun from recycled, ground down plastic soda bottles, milk cartons and other reclaimed plastics that are collected at the curbside and in recycling centers.

Keep in mind –

  • Recycling can save 650,000 barrels of oil and eliminate 375,000 tons of harmful air emissions annually.
  • Making new paper from recycled paper uses 30-50% less energy than making paper from trees and reduces contributions to air pollution by 95%.
  • The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle will light a 100 watt bulb for four hours.
  • Because glass takes so long to decompose, the bottle you throw away today might still be littering the landscape in the year 3000.
  • The energy saved from one recycled aluminum can will operate your television set for three hours.
  • It takes 95% less energy to make aluminum from scrap than from virgin materials.
  • For every ton of waste paper recycled, 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space is saved.
  • Every ton of recycled office paper saves 380 gallons of oil.
