Did You Know? Countdown to Earth Day 2009 (04/18)

Saturday, April 18th, 2009


Did You Know?
Facts & Figures about
Celebrating and
Saving Mother Earth

April 18 : 04 days till Earth Day

Did you know that recycling just one glass bottle saves enough energy to keep a 100-watt light bulb lit for four hours?

Recycling glass uses 40% less energy than making new glass from virgin materials. Glass can be recycled indefinitely and never loses any of its quality.

Did you know that Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every single hour?

Eight out of 10 of them will end up in a landfill, despite the fact that 63% of American communities now have plastic bottle recycling. It takes 700 years for a plastic bottle to begin to decompose in a landfill.

Earth Day is a day to both celebrate the environmental victories of the past and to reflect on the many remaining opportunities for improvement. Whether you celebrate Earth Day by attending a rally, signing a petition or switching to highly efficient light bulbs, make an effort to be mindful of the original vision for this day: to serve as a national learn-in for the sake of the environment.

Join our Earth Day celebration as we present a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Earth Day on April 22nd!
