When it comes to recycling there is a lot of information that people might not know.

Clothes can be recycled.

Recycling-in-2017About 85% of clothes can be recycled. They can be sorted in three categories; re-wear, reuse and recycle. Re-wear are clothes than can be re-worn and are in good enough condition. These are clothes sold in good enough condition to be re-worn and are sold in other countries as second hand clothes. Clothes tagged as reuse are clothes that are not suitable for re-wearing and can be converted into other products. They can be broken down and remade into new clothes. When it comes to recycling, clothes that are in very bad shape are turned into fibers which can be used to make new products like to make insulation for buildings.

Recycling newspapers could save over 250 million trees each year. Recycling paper helps conserve trees, but it has a short recycling period since every time it’s recycled, the fibers become shorter and weaker. Paper can be recycled up to seven times before it has to be discarded.

Aluminum is the worlds most recycled packaging product. Over 70% of aluminum cans can be recycled and it can be recycled infinitely. This means that it can be reused in a way that is completely different from what it was initially and can take on a totally new form to create a new product.
