Aluminum is the only material that's endlessly recyclable, and It takes energy to make aluminum from scratch. In fact, it takes 95% more energy to make aluminum from bauxite ore than to recycle old aluminum into new. The energy you save by recycling a single aluminum can will run a TV for three hours.
