TAKE CARE OF YOUR PLASTIC BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WILL RETURN BACK TO YOU
Just Plastic Cover Wastes worth of 3 Billion Dollars
We are being ignorant when we throw out the “valueless” plastic wastes. And we don’t just polluting the environment, we also destroying one of our countries money resources. If we raise consciousness of us, our friends and even our children, we can achieve a lot of things.
For the production of 1000 pieces of paper, 3785 lt water is consumed. But for the same amount of polyethylene plastic bags, 30 lt of water is consumed. With the recycling the plastic products, 10.5 billion kW of energy and 17 billion lt of water can be saved. It’s also possible to decrease the production of carbon dioxide at rate of 1.9 billion kg. If we recycle all wrapping paper, we can help our economy 3 billions of dollars per year. The statistics of 2015 shows that, on contrary to previous years, with increasing rate of %38, 123 thousand tons of waste recycled. At the same period, 39 town mayors gathered and with the increased rate of %100, they have recycled 8 million peoples waste.
When plastics are recycled, storage area lifespan will be longer, process will be much cheaper and also nonrenewable materials will be protected. Let’s see some examples.
- If 8 plastic bottles would recycle, 1 jersey could be produced.
- From 1050 plastic tray, a couch for 6 can be produced.
- From 2,5 lt of plastic bottle, 6 hours of electricity would be saved.
- From 25 pieces of 2 lt of bottle, a plastic sweater can be produced.
- From 35 pieces of 2,5 lt of bottle, a sleeping bag can be produced.
