Earth Angel Update

Earth Angel

In 2018, more than 52 million tons of paper products were recycled, which is roughly the same weight as almost 350,000 blue whales. 

 

Recycling helps save energy. 

 

By recycling one glass bottle, it can save enough energy to either light a 100-watt bulb for four hours, power a computer for 30 minutes, or keep a television going for 20 minutes.
