Environmental responsibility

Did you know…?

  1. 1/3 of all landfill waste is made up of everyday consumer product packaging.
  2. Bottles and plastic lunch bags or shopping bags account for approximately 7% of our trash, but they also occupy a lot space: almost 30% of all the space occupied by solid waste.
  3. The amount of landfill waste has tripled over the last twenty years. The area this waste occupies has doubled.
  4. Each year, every person throws away about 56 glass containers which could be fully recycled.
  5. Glass packaging is 100% recyclable.
  6. Each recycled glass bottle can save enough energy to light a 100-Watt light bulb for 4 hours.
  7. On average, 17 trees must be cut down to produce one tonne of paper.
  8. On average, two medium-sized trees must be cut down to produce 100 kg of paper.
  9. In a year, one tree produces enough oxygen for 10 people.
  10. Stacked one upon another, the PET bottles discarded worldwide during one year would make a tower that would be 28 million kilometers high – 73 times the distance from the Earth to the Moon!
