New Sustainability Facts have been posted in the ASL restroom by GA Andrea Wilkins. Here are the facts and sources for future reference: Did You Know? 1) Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to run your TV for 3 hours! (source: www.therecyclingchallenge.com) 2) Every ton of mixed paper recycled can save the energy equivalent of 185 gallons of gas! (source: www.epa.gov/epawaste) 3) If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we would save about 25,000,000 trees a year! (source: www.recycling-revolution.com/recycling-facts) 4) Every month, we throw out enough glass bottles and jars to fill up a giant skyscraper. All of these jars are recyclable!

The following facts are contributed by SOA GA Andrea Wilkins. (They can also be read in the ASL restroom -- so yoiu have access in physical as well as virtual space!). Did you know? If your toilet is from 1992 or earlier, you probably have an inefficient model that uses between 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush. Newer, high-efficiency toilets use less than 1.3 gallons per flush -- that's at least 60 percent less water per flush! (EPA, 2008 http://www.epa.gov/owm/water-efficiency/water/simple.htm) Letting your faucet run for five minutes uses about as much energy as letting a 60-watt light bulb run for 14 hours. (EPA, 2008 http://www.epa.gov/owm/water-efficiency/water/simple.htm) A full bath tub requires about 70 gallons of water, while taking a five-minute shower uses only 10 to 25 gallons. (EPA, 2008 http://www.epa.gov/owm/water-efficiency/water/simple.htm)
