Every tonne of crushed waste glass used saves the equivalent of 135 litres of oil and replaces 1.2 tonnes of raw material.
Glass can be recycled for ever.
Buy soft drinks in glass bottles, preferably reusabe.
Buy your milk in returnable glass bottles – milk cartons can’t be recycled.
Line your kitchen bin with newspaper rather than plastic bin liners.
