What can you do?
Take the first step and learn about how to use proper
recycling techniques.Second, choose your earth-friendly
sanitation provider, Youngblood, as your recycling service.
We hear all of the time that we should recycle to help
protect the environment but how much do we really know
For instance did you know that approximately 40% of the
waste in the United States comes from paper but Americans
only recycle about 25%-30% of paper products? This adds
up to destroying close to 30 million trees a year just on
And those Styrofoam cups that you use to drink your coffee
out of every morning? You could circle the Earth more than
400 times with the amount of those cups that are used every year!
Those glass bottles that you throw away? They'll still be there a 1000 years from now!
Did you know that if you recycled just one aluminum can a day that you could save enough to run your
television for 3 hours?
In the United States, one in every six trucks is a garbage truck! With the amount of waste that
is thrown away, is it any wonder that landfills are closing up at the rate of approximately 2 per day
in the United States alone?
Did you ever stop to think what is going to happen to us at that rate?
Where will we be living 100 years from now when all of
the Earths surface is just one big landfill?
Do you want to see your future generations
with no place to go except on a big pile of
trash? True, we probably won't be here by
that time, but they will be our future families
none the less and if you don't want your
family to live on a landfill now, then why
would you want your family of the future
living on a big landfill?
If everyone would recycle just a little bit then we can begin to protect our
Earth for the generations to come. It's better for the environment and helps
to prevent global warming also.
By starting to recycle now, you can teach the children
good habits that they can pass on to their children and
their children's children so that your family and our
Mother Earth can indeed have a future!
