See how to recycle efficiently.

  • One (1) ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 26,500 liters of water and 1,750 liters of oil.
  • Cardboard made from recycled materials offers 50% energy savings and 99% water savings.
  • PETE plastic (PET) is recyclable and extremely sustainable in terms of durability, versatility and recyclability, as it has the ability to be recovered and recycled several times in a row.
  • PETE bottles (PET) are 100% recyclable.
  • Recycling plastics requires significantly less energy than producing new products from virgin materials.
  • Recycling a plastic bottle saves enough energy to operate a 60 Watt light bulb for 6 hours.
  • For the decomposition of plastic objects, depending on the type of plastic, it may take from 50 to 600 years.
  • Recycled aluminum saves 90% of the energy required to produce a new metal package.
  • The cost of energy consumption represents 30% of the cost of primary production of aluminum, while the recycling of aluminum waste (scrap) uses only 5% of the energy required for primary production.
  • In the production of steel and aluminum cans from recycled materials, a reduction in energy consumption of 75% and 95%, respectively, is achieved, compared to the case of the use of virgin materials.
  • Glass can be recycled indefinitely, without any change in material performance.
  • The energy saved by recycling a glass bottle is sufficient to power a 100 Watt light bulb for 4 hours or a small fluorescent lamp for 20 hours. In addition, it causes 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than in the case of producing a new bottle from raw materials.
  • A glass package can be turned into a new product through recycling in a month. Each ton of recycled glass saves up to 582 kg of CO2 emissions through the supply chain, while ensuring a 20% and 50% reduction in air and water pollution, respectively.
