Earth Week - Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Tuesday

April 19, 2016

 

Did you know that Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour? Or that by recycling one ton of plastic bottles saves the equivalent energy usage of a two person household for one year? Americans throw away enough office paper each year to build a 12 foot high wall from Seattle to New York! Today we focused on ways that we can reduce our use of nonbiodegradable materials, reuse or repurpose older things, and recycle a wide variety of things. 

 

Check out Palm Beach County's Solid Waste Authority's webpage for more information about how easy it is to recycle. A simple act today can help save our tomorrow.
