Recycling Facts

• Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to

run a 100-watt light bulb for four hours. It also reduces air pollution by 20% and water pollution by 50% as opposed to a new bottle made from raw materials. • The average American uses seven trees a year in products made from trees, including paper and wood. • Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour, most of which are thrown away. • If you walk 1 mile along an average highway in the US, you will find about 1,457 pieces of litter. • Packaging material makes up about one-third of an average landfill. • The U.S. is the #1 trash-producing country in the world at 1,609 pounds per person per year. That amounts to 40% of the world's waste generated by only 5% of the world’s people! • A single quart of motor oil disposed of improperly can contaminate up to 2,000,000 gallons of fresh water. • New Jersey has the highest recycling rate of all the states in the US at 56%. • Recycling one aluminum can save enough energy to run a television for three hours. • If recycled, an aluminum can is part of a new can within six weeks.

Deep inside the soil my roots are found, Drinking the water underground. Water from the roots my trunk receives, Then my trunk starts making leaves. As I start to climb in altitude, Leaves on my branches will make food. Soon my trunk and branches will grow wide, And I’ll grow more bark outside! I will be a maple very tall, Losing my leaves when it is fall. But when it is spring, new leaves will show. How do trees grow? Now you know!
