Earth Day 2010

Tomorrow is Earth Day.

Interesting Earth Day Facts:
  • Every ton of paper that is recycled save 17 trees
  • It takes 50-70 gallons of water for a 10 minute shower
  • More than 20 million (that's 20,000,000) Hershey's kisses are wrapped each day. That is 133 square miles of tin foil. All of that can be recycled.
  • If every newspaper was recycled, 250 million (250,000,000) trees could be saved each year. Unfortunately on 27% of all American newspapers are recycled.
  • If you brush your teeth for the full 3 minutes (which you should if you don't) and leave the water running, you are wasting approximately 8 gallons of water each time.
