Recycling in numbers!
∞Environmental impacts of recycling are astounding by huge numbers for example recycling saves enough every year to power 1.4 million California homes and reduce water pollutants by 27,047 tons. Not only saving energy and pollutant problems recycling helps save over 14 million trees each allowing reduced air pollutants by 165,142 tons.
∞For every ton of paper made from recycled materials it will saves/generates:
∞Aluminum companies are able to save the equivalent of more than 19 millions barrels of oil in one year. Wow that’s enough oil for energy to supply electricity to over 18 millions households
∞Cars built from recycled aluminum just laying around can decreases 95% of air pollution but out by car manufacturing companies.
