Some trash facts for your Labour Day Weekend…
Here is some “trashy” trivia for your Labour Day celebrations this weekend.
Did you know…
- The average Canadian throws away about 2.7 kg of trash a DAY. That adds up to 31 million tonnes of garbage a year.
- Recycling 909 kilograms of paper saves 1,682 kilograms of lumber, 90,849 liters of water and uses 64 percent less energy to produce.
- An aluminum can can be remelted and put back on store shelves in as little as 60 day. It takes 90-95% less energy to produce an aluminum can if it’s being recycled than it would to create new ones.
- Aluminum is incredibly durable. Two thirds of the aluminum that has ever been produced is still in use today.
- Bottles, fiber glass insulation, and materials used in building roads can all come from recycle glass.
