Green World Eco Facts

 

Just by making a few small changes you can make a big difference.
Here are some interesting facts about our energy consumption:

 
If just 25% of U.S. families used 10 fewer plastic bags a month, we
  would save over 2.5 BILLION bags a year.
   
On the average, the 140 million cars in America are estimated to
  travel almost 4 billion miles in a day, and according to the Department of Transportation, they use over 200 million gallons of gasoline doing it.
   
About 1% of U.S. landfill space is full of disposable diapers, which
  take 500 years to decompose.
   
Energy saved from one recycled aluminum can will operate a TV set
  for 3 hours, and is the equivalent to half a can of gasoline.
   
Enough glass was thrown away in 1990 to fill the Twin Towers
  (1,350 feet high) of New York's World Trade Center every two weeks.
   
Americans use 50 million tons of paper annually - consuming more
  than 850 million trees.
   
The United States has 5% of the world's population and 30% of the
  waste.
   
Turn off the water faucet when brushing your teeth. This simple act
  can save 9 gallons of water every time you brush.
   
Every year we make enough plastic film to shrink-wrap Texas.
   
If every American replaced just one light bulb or fixture with an
  ENERGY STAR-qualified one, we would save enough energy to light more than 3 million homes for a year, we would save more than $600 million in annual energy costs, and we would prevent greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of more than 800,000 cars.
 

Always Remember: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
