How do we know if a material is non renewable?

    A non-renewable material is any material that is derived from the earth that cannot grow back within a relatively short period of time.  This includes all metals from mines, as well as oils, which take millions of years to form.  Non-renable resources are consumed much faster than they can be produced, and they cannot be recycled in a way that is properly sustainable.  Once the resource is removed from the ground, however, it is best to recycle and reuse efficiently as possible, as we try to do with aluminum cans, glass bottles, and all sorts of plastics.
