  7. 7. WHERE I RECYCLED &quot;Recycle Here&quot;  Detroit, MI
  8. 8. MATH STATISTICS <ul><li>1.    In the process of recycling paper 58% less water is required, that means about 42% of water is actually used and that saves  water when recycling paper. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>2.    Making cans from recycled aluminum cuts related air pollution by 95%, so only 5% of pollution is put out  in the environment when recycling aluminum.  </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>3.    The average american can save 6 pounds of glass in a month, thats 72 pounds of glass a year. </li></ul>
