Did you know that....

  1. In 1976, an average American had 1.6 gallon of bottled water in a year. 30 years later in 2006, one person consumed just over 28 gallons per year.
  2. That means 167 bottles of water were consumed by each person in the year of 2006.
  3. From that consumption, only an average of 38 bottles were recycled per person. That is about merely 23 percent of the whole bottled water consumption.
Did you also know that....

  1. 5 plastic bottles could be recycled into Polyester T-Shirt, like this one.
  2. 25 recycled plastic soda bottles could be recycled into one fleece jacket.
  3. 35 plastic bottles could be made into a sleeping bag or 1-square yard of polyester carpet.
So what about recycling more and drinking less bottled water? That should do everyone a huge favor in the future.
