Glass recyclingGlass was discovered more than 5,000 years ago.  Today it's used to make all sorts of glass bottles and jars for packaging food and drinks.

Glass is 100% recyclable.  It takes less energy to melt recycled glass than to melt new raw materials so recycling saves both natural resources and energy.
