55 billion aluminum cans were not recycled in 2005. That energy wasted would meet the needs of 1.5 million households for a year!
"There is enough in the world for everybody's need, but not enough for anybody's greed." - Gandhi
The energy saved by recycling a single plastic bottle is enough to power a 60-watt bulb for six hours
The 55 billion aluminum cans landfilled each year have a scrap value of more than $900 million
