Recycled cans can come back as new cans in just six weeks and making a can from recycled materials instead of new saves enough energy to power a television for three hours.
Recycled plastic bottles can be turned into all sorts of new things, from park benches to fleece jackets. And it’s not just water and juice bottles – you can recycle milk, shampoo and conditioner bottles too.
