Reduce Reuse Recycle
Reuse- I can reuse by using both sides of the paper and use refillable water bottles
Recycle- I can recycle by not throwing away stuff that can be recycled
How It Got Started
- Every ton of paper that is recycled saves 17 trees, 2 barrels of oil, 4,100 kilowatts of energy, 3.2 cubic yards of landfill space, and 60 pounds of air pollution
- in 1987 California began a beverage container recycling program, Today they have recycled over 120 billion bottles and cans.
