Bea Johson - Zero Waste Home

Kid Knews Planet Points

  • If just 10% of cell phone users unplugged their charger while they were not in use, it would save enough energy to power 60,000 homes for a whole year.

  • If we replaced just one out of every five paper greeting cards we buy with a paperless alternative, we could save 130 million pounds of wood, 183 million gallons of water, and 39 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! Producing new paper, glass, and metal products from recycled materials saves 70 to 90 percent of the energy and pollution, (including CO2), that would result if the product came from virgin materials. Recycling a stack of newspapers only four feet high will save a good-sized tree. Please… Reduce, Recycle and above all REUSE!!
