  1. The recycling of just one bottle can save enough energy to light a bulb of 100W (watts) for four full hours. The advantage of glass is also that it can be ceaselessly recycled.

    Recycling fee? This is a terrible idea. It’s hard enough to get people to recycle properly. The costs of recycling should be built into the purchase price. Otherwise, people will just put this stuff in landfills.
