Every can you recycle saves enough energy to power a tv for 3 hours.

HOW?

Not too obvious, but here is my half educated guess.

To produce aluminum from raw materials takes energy a lot of energy in fact. You have to melt the stone and separate the different elements, etc. That is why most aluminum factories are located in energy (read oil) rich countries, like Russia and the Middle East.

Now, if you simply melt an existing can to recycle the material you use much much less energy to produce the new can.

Therefore the difference in energy between producing a can from raw material or recycled is the amount that can power a TV for 3 hours.
