Green Tip

Recycle & Save on Energy!

Recycling is an excellent way to save energy and preserve the environment. One recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a TV for three hours. One recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes while one recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for three hours. Seventy percent less energy is required to recycle paper as compared to making it from raw materials.
