Recycling conserves energy and natural resources. For example:
- Recycling one ton of office paper can save the energy equivalent of consuming 322 gallons of gasoline.
- Recycling just one ton of aluminum cans conserves more than 152 million Btu, the equivalent of 1,024 gallons of gasoline or 21 barrels of oil consumed.
- Recycling just 10 plastic bottles save enough energy to power a laptop for more than 25 hours.
