Garbage and Trash Trivia

Monday, October 15, 2007

Hey all, since it's Blog Action Day, and it's time for us to be aware of of our environment, here are a few facts that might help us realize that we really need to REUSE, REDUCE, and RECYCLE. Let's all work together for a cleaner, greener Earth. :)

  • Most families throw away about 40 kg plastic a year.
  • Paper products make up approximately 40 percent of our trash.
  • Every year more than 900 million trees are cut down to provide raw materials for American paper and pulp mills.
  • Plastic bags and other plastic rubbish thrown into the ocean kill as many as a million sea creatures every year.
  • To create just 1 kilogram of consumer goods, manufacturers create 5 kilograms of waste.
  • The energy saved by recycling 1 bottle will power a computer for 25 minutes.
  • Every year we fill enough garbage trucks to form a line that would stretch from the earth, halfway to the moon.
  • Americans buy 2,300.000 pairs of shoes a day - enough to cover the bottom of a 17-acre closet with shoe boxes.
  • One quart of motor oil can pollute 250,000 gallons of water.
  • The plastic used in one toner cartridge contains about a half quart of oil.
  • hat styrofoam cup that you drank your coffee out of this morning will still be in the landfill 500 years from now.

Let's clean up our act, friends. :)
