#Recycling one aluminum can saves enough #energy to keep 100watt bulb lit about 4hrs or run your #television for 3hrs:
Getting Back To Basics.
Recycling is really just common sense, and until the “modern era,” it was a common household activity. Before the 1920s, 70% of U.S. cities ran programs to recycle certain materials. During World War II, industry recycled and reused about 25% of the waste stream. Because of concern for the environment, recycling is again on the upswing. The nation’s composting and recycling rate rose from 7.7% of the waste stream in 1960 to 17% in 1990. It’s currently up to around 30%.
Recycling helps protect our resources, our environment, our quality of life. As stewards of the environment, we are responsible for preserving and protecting our resources for ourselves and for future generations.
Recycling a single aluminum can provides
enough energy to power a television for three hours.
That same amount of energy could light a 100 watt bulb for 4 hours. Recycling all the aluminum cans that were produced in 2002 would have conserved an amount of energy equal to over 30 million barrels of crude oil! If you throw a can in the trash, that’s the equivalent of filling that can halfway with gasoline, and then pouring it all out.
