Why now?

Now is the time. I saw a sign at a garden nursery that said, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is today.” The same can be said for recycling–the best time was 20 years ago, the second-best time is today!

Today our landfills are overflowing

The average person throws away 4.5 pounds of glass each day. Do the math

Each month we throw away enough glass jars and bottles to fill a giant skyscraper.

Today the glass bottle we toss in the trash will still be there 1 million years from now.

Today glass can be recycled infinitely with no loss of quality – in effect, melting glass to make new glass is the same as melting sand. That means fewer natural resources are taken from the environment.
