EARTH DAY AND THE RECYCLING NUMBERS

Its actually easier than you might think to be GREEN....

You might think with all the amazing outdoor activities you can find in Denver and all over Colorado and the jewel of a state that we have with all the national parks, biking trails, and 14ers we might be really good at finding the recycling bin...guess again. We stink at it. According to a report 84 percent of our Dendrites trash ends up in the dump.  Infact in Seattle only 39 percent of trash is found in the landfill.  In honor of EARTH DAY April 22 lets find some ways to be better at recycling because it really is an easy thing to do. Save the planet now.


Did you know that the city of Denver runs a composting program that turns your food scraps into mulch? If your into gardening you might find that useful. 


Do you know that recycling helps save the planet but it also can do things for you as well. For instance three ALUMINUM cans of  New Belgium Fat Tire can provide enough electricity to power nine hours of World of Warcraft on your laptop.

If you like to drink Coke soda from a PLASTIC bottle think about how five two-liter bottle of coke can be recylced into a jacket made from bottles. 

Do you read the newspaper? Well if you don't read the Denver Post online but have it delivered next time your finished reading the newspaper place it in the recycle bin. A month of the Denver Post  recycled provides an energy savings equal to sever hours of hair dryer use. 


Things in your home or apartment that cant be recycled by the Denver Recycle Program include:

Books (pages are held together by non-recyclable glue.)

The plastic rings binding your Coors Six Pack (  snip their loops to keep animals safe like dolphins and seagulls. )

Kleenex ( No one wants your recycled snot. )
