We do not inherit the earth from our parents; we borrow it from our children.

Why recycle?

Paper:

  • The average American uses 650 lbs. of paper per year.

By recycling one ton (2,000 lbs.) of paper, we save: 17 trees; 6,953 gallons of water; 463 gallons of oil; 587 pounds of air pollution; 3.06 cubic yards of landfill space and 4,077 kilowatt hours of energy.

Plastic:

  • Americans go through 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour.

Half of all polyester carpet manufactured in the U.S. is made from recycled soda bottles.

Aluminum:

  • We use about 392 cans per person per year.

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough electricity to run a TV for three hours.

Steel:

  • The average American uses 142 steel cans annually.
