Reuse, Reduce and Recycle

I started consolidating empty containers, be it from skincare or food containers etc. In fact, my family members were also influenced my routine and will also subconsciously place the empty containers into a bucket i have allocated specially for recycling purpose.
My bagful of containers to be recycled.
Do you know???

"By recycling 1 plastic bottle not only saves anywhere from 100 to 1000 years in the landfill but also saves the environment from the emissions in producing new bottles as well as the oil used to produce that bottle. For every 1 ton of plastic that is recycled we save the equivalent of 2 people’s energy use for 1 year, the amount of water used by 1 person in 2 month’s time and almost 2000 pounds of oil."
