Did you know that…

• Recycling one aluminum can save enough energy to run a TV for three hours.
• If you had a 15-year old tree and made it into paper grocery bags, you’d get about 700 of them. A busy supermarket could use all of them in under one hour!
• A modern glass bottle will take 4,000 years or more to decompose.

If the world’s population used up our natural resources at the rate that the United States currently does it would take five planets to support us long term. We must change our ways in order to sustain the Earth for future generations. What better way to start than to educate our students about things they can do to help preserve our natural resources?

Invite LRSWA into your classroom to give your students a better understanding of what happens after trash leaves the curb and how their choices have a lasting environmental impact. LRSWA offers fun and information filled 30 minute lesson and activities for grades Pre-K through middle school.
