Earth Day 2008
What’s the deal?
• Over 80% of bottles are thrown away (but plastic bottles leak chemicals, endangering your health!) • They take 1,000 years to biodegrade • In the US alone the production: • Requires 17+ million barrels of oil (plus transport) • Produces 2.5+ million tons of carbon dioxide • Requires 3L of water to produce 1L bottled water
• Minimize production & transport cost • No extra water usage • Save money • Less trash

Carpool Day: FRIDAY
We’re not asking you to do this…just get a ride with 2 or more friends!
Why should you carpool?
(or use mass transit, of course!)
• By 2030 the number of cars in the world will increase by 50%
• According to Chevron, the world uses 2 barrels of oil for every 1 discovered • It took 125 years for the world to consume 1 trillion barrels of oil, the world will consume the next trillion in only 30
• Each gallon of gasoline burned creates 19 pounds of CO2
+ its cheaper & probably more enjoyable for YOU!
Haha…Here we go…
HAPPY EARTH DAY!
