I’m big into recycling now. One of the recycled products which fascinates me is glass. Not only do you see glass objects every day, you see in lying around in shattered pieces, shimmering in lots of different shades as they catch the sun. I can’t stop thinking about what a rewarding material glass is and the dozens of ways it can be used. Because it is made from domestic materials such as soda ash, limestone, and sand, glass is 100% recyclable. In fact it can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality.
I also discovered that recycled glass containers are always needed and available because glass manufacturers actually require high-quality recycled container glass so as to meet market demands for new glass containers.
I’ve also discovered that colour sorting is important too and that separating recycled container glass by colour ensures that new bottles match the colour standards required by glass container customers. We all live on planet Earth.
For me, anyone who cares about its future should be doing recycling. Certainly manufacturers benefit from recycling and we are helping them. Reduced emissions and consumption of raw materials is enough for me to know that if we all play a part, we really can extend the life of our beautiful planet.
