    Absolutely! Recycling uses less energy and and produces less pollution than creating materials from scratch.

    making recycled aluminum cans from recycled cans uses 1/12 the energy than producing new ones

    Take into consideration glass bottles as well: after taking into account the transportation and processing, 315kg of CO2 is saved per tonne of glass recycled

    Creating bags from recycled polythene utilizes one third the Sulphur Dioxide and half the Nitrous Oxide, as opposed to making them from scratch.
