Recyling Facts

I went to the WFAA's (Channel 8 here in Dallas) Project Green Summit last night. The keynote speaker was Ed Begley, Jr. Hubby I and loved seeing Ed!!!!! We watch Living With Ed all the time. Although, I'm more of an "Ed" and he's more of a "Rachelle".

Anyway, here's some fun facts that were on the outside of my "made from corn" waste bag for the car. Courtesy of Half Price Books.

1. Recycle your aluminum cans. If 250 people recycled 1 can a day we would save the energy equivalent of 1,750 - 3,500 gallons of gas. That's just 250 people!!

2. Recycle your plastic. Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every HOUR, most of them being thrown away. Bottled water is something of the past in our house, since water comes out of the faucet for "free".

3. Recycle your glass. The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle will light a 100 watt bulb for 4 hours. WOW!

4. Recycle your newspaper. If everyone is the U.S. would recycle 1/10 of their newspaper we would save approximatley 25 million trees a year.

So, Please Recycle!!!!!!! Here's even something HERE to enter the Living With Ed sweepstakes. It's for a trip to Hollywood to spend the day with Ed. Yay!!

P.S. Sorry for the mini vacation from blogging. I turned 33 on Monday and have been relaxing with my family. Hubby was off, etc. :)
