Eco-Cool Facts for Earth Day

  • Love the Planet, lose the plastic. Only 3% of plastic is being recycled. The rest winds up buried in landfills which can take 200-400 years to degrade.
  • Fuel your tank with the lowest grade octane allowed and save over 3 billion dollars a year – enough to buy more than 100,000 hybrid cars.
  • Peace on Earth has to start with the Earth. If this very minute every one of us changed the way we drive, eat, heat our homes and carry our groceries, we would still only have 7 years to reverse the damage that has been done. Bottom line, if we dont give peace a chance, our planet doesnt have one either.
  • Tap into a greener planet by turning off the tap. Every two minutes you save on your shower can conserve more than ten gallons of water.
