Earth Day

April 16, 2012

Did you know that:

  • Each tonne of recycled paper means 17 trees do not have to be cut down.
  • 50 percent of the material in aluminum cans has been recycled at least once.
  • The process of recycling an aluminum can, manufacturing another, filling it, packing and shipping it to stores, takes less than 60 days.
  • 3700 recycled two litre beverage containers will produce 150 fleece shirts, and save one barrel of oil in the process.
  • Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to keep the light on in your bedroom for four hours.
  • Juice boxes really do get recycled into toilet paper.

Highlanders let's see how much more paper, cardboard and drink containers we can recycle.  Please remember to remove straws from drink boxes.
