Glass: Why it's better By Emma, Christina and Isa

Why is glass better?

It's chemical-free, which means it's good for the ENVIRONMENT

Recycling= one way to reduce

It saves energy

It takes 5000-9000 watts for 1 kilo of glass

it takes 60,800 watts for 1 kilo of ALUMINUM

to make glass you need three NATURAL and common materials.

AMERICANS throw out 2.5 million plastic bottles in a year!!

Making glass from recycled material cuts related water pollution in half!

Thank you!!!
