recycling one pound of LDPE (Plastic #4) saves



  1. 0 Votes

    When you recycle LDPE, which is low-density polyethylene, you save enough electrical energy to power a computer for an additional 19 hours.  This type of plastic can be food-packaging, shrink-wrap, or heavy duty bags.  According to one website, “By using plastic in packaging, American product manufacturers save enough energy each year to power a city of 1 million homes for three and a half years.”  Each pound of LDPE that gets recycled contributes to that.
