Still making the case for recycling

1,500 - Gallons of water it takes to make just one single drive-through order: hamburger, fries, & soda; including the water needed to grow potatoes, the grain for the bun & the cattle, and everything for the soda.
5,500,000 - Number of boxes of software thrown away each month
100,000 - Number of CDs thrown away each month
$370 mil - How much could be saved in landfill dumping fees if all Americans recycled their junk mail instead of trashing it!
Think about it!  Will you take a small step to help?
