Americans throw away enough office paper annually to build a wall 12 feet high stretching from LA to New York.
One ton of recycled paper uses 64% less energy, 50% less water and 74% less air pollution than one ton of paper products made from virgin wood pulp. It also saves 17 trees and creates 5 times more jobs.
Americans throw away enough aluminum every three months to rebuild our entire commercial air fleet.
It takes 75,000 trees to print a Sunday Edition of the New York Times.
In a lifetime, the average American will throw away 600 times his or her adult weight in garbage, leaving a legacy of 90,000 lbs. of trash for his or her children.
