    • 1. Go Green Presentation
      Shawn Waters
    • 2. Why Should We Go Green?
      The world has a fixed amount of natural resources - some of which are already depleted.
      Threats to future resources come from things we throw away everyday. Household batteries and electronics often contain dangerous chemicals that leak through and pollute the groundwater.
      Throwing away items that could be recycled diminishes energy, water and natural resources that could be saved by recycling.

    • 3. Did You Know…
      For every ton of paper that is recycled, 7,000 gallons of water; 380 gallons of oil; and enough electricity to power an average house for six months is saved.
      Recycling one aluminum will save enough energy to run a TV for three hours.
      By recycling just one glass bottle, you save enough electricity to power a 100-watt bulb for four hours.
      If every household recycled 1 out of 10 plastic bottles they used, we’d keep 200 million lbs. of plastic out of the landfill every year.
      If 100,00 people stopped receiving their junk mail, we would save up to 150,000 trees annually. Imagine if a million people did this, we would save up to a million trees!
