Energycalculator
The Energy Calculator will give you an idea of just how much energy you can save by recycling your glass containers. The use of recycled glass in the manufacture of new glass bottles, jars, and other products actually reduces the amount of energy needed to make a new product and because there is no limit to the number of times glass can be recycled, the environmental benefits of glass recycling are unique in the container industry! See how much energy you are saving:If you’d like to see how your recycling habits impact the environment, enter a number in the Energy Calculator below, and we’ll show you.

Number of glass containers recycled each week:*Our calculations are based on an average sized container. If you regularly recycle very large items (such as champagne Bottles) go ahead and count those as two and if you regularly recycle small containers (such as baby food jars) count those as a half to get a more accurate estimate of your energy savings.Containers per yearWatts saved per yearCFLCFL time t60 Watt60w timeTVtv timeMicrowavemicro timeCFL yearcfl year time60 Watt year60w year timeTV yeartv year timeMicrowave yearmicro year time

In a week you recycle {Number of glass containers recycled each week::1} container(s).
That means over the course of a year you recycle {Containers per year:2} glass containers. —
Which will save {Watts saved per year:3} watts of energy!What can recycling {Number of glass containers recycled each week::1} container(s) per week do?
Well, it could:
Light a compact florescent bulb for: {CFL time t:23}
Light a standard 60 watt light bulb for: {60w time:26}
Operate a computer for: {tv time:28}
Operate a TV for: {micro time:30}

That means for a full year, you could:
Light a compact florescent bulb for: {cfl year time:32}
Light a standard 60 watt light bulb for: {60w year time:34}
Operate a computer for: {tv year time:36}
Operate a TV for: {micro year time:38}
