We Earthlings: Glass Recycling Helps the Environment

What connects us all? Nature and our shared relationships through nature.

Share how you can help reduce air and water pollution by doing your part to recycle glass containers. Glass that’s produced from recycled glass reduces related air pollution by 20 percent and related water pollution by 50 percent compared to new glass. And for every glass container that we recycle, we save raw materials, reduce disposal costs, and send less waste to landfills.

Print or share We Earthling posters to inspire others with your stories.

Using recycled glass produces 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution compared to creating new glass
