- Many Lackawanna County students are recycling school paper in the County’s 7th Annual Earth Month GreenSylvania Competition.
- Last year our students recycled over 10 ton of paper!
- Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 trees.
- To grow a pound of wood a tree uses 1.47 lbs of carbon dioxide and gives us 1.07 lbs of oxygen.
- Earth’s forests are the lungs of the world. We depend on them for the air we breathe.
- Americans recycle or reuse almost 250 million lbs of paper Every Day.
- More than 50% of all paper products in the U.S. are made from recycled paper.
Help our Earth and
Recycle All of the Paper at Home, Work & School
