Recycling Food for Thought
- Recycling is a simple way to help preserve natural resources. Make a family commitment to recycle.
- Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV for 3 hours.
- The amount of wood and paper we throw away each year is enough to heat 50,000,000 homes for 20 years.
- If all the newspapers were recycled each year, we could save about 250,000,000 trees annually.
- A 15 year old tree yields about 700 plastic grocery bags which a busy grocery store could use in 1 hour.
- Whenever possible, substitute reuseable items for consumables. A good example would be to use towels, rags, & sponges instead of paper towels or dishes instead of paper plates and cups.
- Americans generate trash at an astonishing rate of 4-6 pounds per day, per person.
- Many people are unaware that the person opening a package of gum and dropping the wrapper on the sidewalk is doing an illegal act and if caught, could face charges. Littering is against the law.
- 75% of Americans admit to littering within the past 5 years.
Creator’s Canvas Cancer Research Foundation raises money for cancer research and education through recycling with the St. Landry Parish Solid Waste program.
Recyclable items (paper, cardboard, plastic, tin cans, or aluminum cans) can be brought to the recycle center in Opelousas, LA and donated to the Creator’s Canvas account.
Thank you to anyone able to help with this .
Recycling & Conservation Food for Thought
- Look for ways to recycle or reuse materials. Find new uses for old items, rather than throwing them away.
- Help your child or grandchild build a bird feeder or birdhouse out of items you have on hand.
- Using cloth towels instead of paper ones is resourceful and good for our planet.
- Help your child or grandchild calculate how much money could be saved if all the lights were turned off when not in use.
- Jelly jars make excellent drinking cups or flower vases.
- Practice conservation by planting a tree in your backyard.
- How we manage waste affects our/your world’s environment, every thing that surrounds you including the air, water, land, plants, and man made things.
- Did you know that you can run a TV for 6 hours on the same amount of electricity that is saved by you recycling just one aluminum can?
- Conservation means not being wasteful. Make an effort to conserve water and energy, the generation will thank you.
