[greenyes] Megatons reduced by recycling
Greeting
 
Imagine one ton of standard mix of recyclable items
coming out of a home fiber, metal, glass etc.
 
I understand that using recycled vs. virgin material saves approximately 75% of the energy used in virgin production of this mix.
 
I anyone aware of the actual reduction in megatons of GHG's involved
 
Thanks
