One ton of recycled glass saves:
0.12 barrels of oil (5 gallons)
714,000 BTU's of energy,
7.5 pounds of air pollutants from being released
2 cubic yards of landfill space
More than one ton of natural resources is conserved for every ton of glass recycled. This includes- 1,300 pounds of sand, 410 pounds of soda ash, 380 pounds of limestone, and 160 pounds of feldspar
For every 6 tons of glass recycled = 1 ton of CO2 not being put in the atmosphere.
Reclaimed wood by definition saves trees from being cut down. More than 8000 tree species – that’s 10% of the world’s total – are threatened with extinction.Saving just 30 trees by using reclaimed wood, can absorb as much as 946lb of CO2 out of the atmosphere each year.
30 trees can provide a day’s supply of oxygen for up to 120 people, and the net cooling effect for 30 young trees is equivalent to 300 air conditioning units operating at 20 hours a day.
