- reduction of water usage by nearly 90%
- reduction of carbon dioxide generation by two-and-a-half times

Nice to get the information regarding the recycling tips. I used to recycle all my plastic stuffs in a plastic sack itself and then when its full, I dispose it underneath the ground. I use some kind of Fiberglass Planters for planting the shrubs in my garden, and sometimes I even use the recycled stuffs as a fertilizer to the plants, but never used the plastic stuffs. I believe home made fertilizers are better than the ones with chemicals on it. Isn't it???

Polyurethane is made from mixture of more than one material, it is good  it if you can avoid this and the easiest of plastics to recycle is Polyethylene. Often  we used for soda bottles, water bottles and many common food packages.
