Freebie Friday: Green Facts...

I love learning things, so I'm going to fill your Friday with Freebies and Facts!! There is alot to learn about our planet and whats happening everyday. We have to live here and so do our children after us so why not learn a little about our "carbon footprints" so we can do a little something to help. I'm not screaming from the rooftops that you have to go vegan or wear hemp, I'm just sayin. Our family does what we can(there's always more we can do of course) but I hope that I am teaching my kids most of all why its important to be "green".

*Did you know EVERY day 60 million plastic water bottles go into landfills.

*Every day in the U.S., we produce enough trash to equal the weight of the Empire State Building!!

*Recycling one ton of paper saves 17 trees, 2 barrels of oil, 4,100 kilowatts of energy, 3.2 cubic yards of landfill space and 60 pounds of air pollution.

*The human population on earth has grown more in the last 50 years than it did in the previous 4 million years.

*One in four mammals is at risk of extinction.
