Summary of why we should recycle
Environmental issues and “going green” have gotten a lot of attention lately. Everyone agrees that something must be done NOW to minimize the impact we are having on the environment. But what many may not know is that recycling is one of the easiest and cheapest ways for people to go green.

Consider this:


-Every year, Americans trash over 180 BILLION tons of recyclable materials like newspapers and aluminum cans. That equals $6.4 billion dollars, 540 billion cubic yards of landfill space and $12 billion in lost energy!

The EPA estimates 66 percent of the materials we trash every day could be recycled. Only approximately 25 percent actually is being recycled.

-Every year, we waste one billion trees by throwing away our newspapers and other paper products.

-Recycling 35 percent of our trash would reduce global warming emissions equal to taking 36 million cars off the road.
