2 “Every 220,000 sheets of paper that are recycled saves 17 trees” “If everyone in America recycled paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, we could decrease waste sent to landfills by 75%.”

3 “Use a ceramic mug for coffee. Americans use 14 billion paper cups each year, more than enough to circle the earth 55 times.”

4 “If every household replaced a single bottle of body wash with a bar of soap roughly 2.5 million lbs of plastic containers would not end up in a landfill.”

5 GCC could recycle ~20% of the waste it currently sends to the landfill. (Down from 40% in 2008)
