And you thought recycling was a new idea

Did you know the ancient Roman's recycled glass?  According to Discovery News large quantities of glass were recycled in Britain during the 3rd and 4th centuries A.D.  Archeologist have found that the majority of the glass that came to Britain during that time period was made from recycled glass.

Of course, they did it because they didn't have the raw materials and not in an effort to go green.

It's an interesting article, I recommend reading it for more information.
