The Coca-Cola Recyclometer calculates the positive impact you have each time you recycle. With just a few clicks, this handy tool tells you how much energy you save when you recycle cans, plastic bottles, jars, magazines and more, compared with the energy that would be lost by simply throwing those items away.
Did you know? Recycling just one 330ml aluminium can saves enough energy to power a light bulb for two and a half hours
Throwing a can into a recycling bin may feel like a small act – but if everyone in the UK did the same, we’d save enough energy to power a dazzling 16,916 bulbs continuously for a whole year.
Go on: take a look in your recycling bin and plug its contents into the Coca-Cola Recyclometer for more illuminating facts and figures.
