Need other facts to help convince your community that recycling is important? Take a look at these. Sprinkle these facts throughout all of your communication materials. Also, check out the  HYPERLINK "/PlanYourCampaign/CampaignRollout/FactoidCalculator/tabid/69/Default.aspx" Recycling Calculator to develop some facts exclusive to your community. ENERGY SAVINGS For each pound of aluminum recycled, Georgians save the energy resources needed to generate 7.5 kilowatt-hours of electricity. If Georgians recycled just 1.7 million tons of the 2.6 million tons of recyclables they throw away annually, it would: Conserve 4 percent of the total energy consumed annually within the state equal to the transportation energy consumed by over 1 million Georgians each year. Conserve more than 7 million barrels of oil, calculated at an annual savings of almost $700 million. Paper mills use 40 percent less energy to make paper from recycled paper than they do making paper from virgin timber. WATER CONSERVATION Each year, Georgians waste the equivalent of 13 billion gallons of water by landfilling 1.9million tons of paper. If Georgians recycled just half of the paper thrown away each year, they would save 6.6billion gallons of water or enough water for every Georgian to take 36 showers. A ton of paper made from recycled fibers conserves 7,000 gallons of water. Recycling five pounds of paper will conserve enough water to offset the water used in a typical shower. CLIMATE CHANGE Each year, Georgians throw away 1.9 million tons of paper. That equates to cutting down 32.3 million trees every year. If all paper in Georgia thrown away annually was recycled, Georgians would save 32.3million tons of CO2 emissions, or the equivalent of taking 8.3 million cars off the street. Making paper from recycled paper reduces contributions to air pollution by 95 percent. ECONOMICS Based upon the average landfill fee, Georgians spend over $90 million to throw recyclable materials away. Georgia has the second largest market for recycled commodities in the entire country second only to California! Paper 16 mills in the state use recycled fiber to produce their paper products Aluminum Novelis, one of the largest aluminum recyclers in the world, has a processing plant in Greensboro, Georgia Plastic One-third of all PET plastic recycled in North America is turned into carpet in Georgia Glass 3 manufacturers in the state use recycled content material in their operations ALUMINUM/STEEL Georgians annually throw away 360,000 tons of metal each year. If Georgians recycled all the steel cans thrown away each year in Georgia, we could manufacture more than 74,000 cars. Recycling a single aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television (or computer) for three hours. Every three months, Americans landfill enough aluminum to rebuild our entire commercial air fleet. Once an aluminum can is recycled, it can be part of a new can within six weeks. Making products from recovered materials instead of virgin materials saves energy. For aluminum cans, the energy saved is more than 90 percent. For steel cans, the energy saved is more than 60 percent. PAPER Georgians annually throw away 1.9 million tons of paper. Recycling a stack of paper just three feet high saves one tree. To produce the countrys Sunday newspapers each week, 500,000 trees must be cut down. The average American uses seven trees a year in paper, wood and other products made from trees. This amounts to about two billion trees per year. Approximately one billion trees worth of paper are thrown away every year in the United States. Each ton (2,000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4,000 kilowatts of energy and 7,000 gallons of water. This represents a 64 percent energy savings, a 58 percent water savings and 60 pounds less air pollution. GLASS Georgians annually throw away 240,000 tons of glass. One glass bottle conserves enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours or an 11-watt CFL bulb for 20 hours. Glass can be recycled an indefinite number of times and never wears out. Making glass from recycled material cuts related water pollution by 50 percent. PLASTIC Georgians annually throw away 1 million tons of plastic. Americans recycled 3.3 billion pounds of plastics in 2005, keeping it out of landfills. One PET soft drink bottle will save enough energy to run a TV for one-and-a-half hours. Five PET bottles yield enough fiber for one extra large T-shirt, one square foot of carpet, or enough fiber to fill one ski jacket. Americans use two-and-a-half million plastic bottles and throw away 25 million plastic beverage bottles every hour. Americans throw away 25 billion Styrofoam coffee cups every year.
