Facts

Some interesting environmental facts:

Every second an area of rainforest the size of a rugby field is destroyed.

65% of all living things are found in the rainforest.

Using 1 tonne of banana fibers, to make paper instead of wood saves 17 trees.

More than 12 million acres a year of rainforest is cut down, this is bigger than the size of England, Scotland and Wales put together.

26% of humans in the world uses 86% of the earths natural materials.

Over 7.5 million tonnes of food is wasted per year, thats over £500 wasted per family.

30,000 children die each day worldwide from starvation due to lack of food.



Ask yourself is this right???


You can make a difference, there is still time if we act quickly,
just do your bit, do NOT assume somebody else will do it for you!

REDUCE your waste
REUSE what you already have before buying new stuff
RECYCLE to cut down landfill waste and to decrease the useage of new raw material used in manufacturing.
