OUR PLANET IN TROUBLE
Did you know the U.S. consumes 1500 plastic water bottles every SECOND?
And out of the 50 billion water bottles being bought each year, 80% end up in landfills,
even though recycling programs exist.
SEVENTEEN MILLION BARRELS OF OIL are used in producing bottled water each year.
Did you know that 690 thousand tons of plastic bags and plastic wrappers
are manufactured annually, and only 4.3% are recycled?
What does cutting down trees have to do with climate change and CO2?
An estimated 18 million acres of forest are lost each year. (FAO). Forest loss contributes between 12 and 17 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions (World Resources Institute). Trees absorb greenhouse gases and carbon emissions. They produce oxygen and perpetuate the water cycle by releasing water vapor into the atmosphere. (LiveScience.com)
