The “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” Eco-Challenge is at its mid-point and we’ve already made an extraordinary impact. Thirty-one individuals have joined the JouleBug challenge in support of sustainability through waste reduction, and I couldn’t be more proud of what we are accomplishing. Let’s break it down.
2.2 thousand pounds of CO2 have been saved so far. That is the amount released by powering a home for an entire month, having the same impact as planting 26 tree seedlings. (JouleBug)
105 pounds of waste have been diverted from landfills. That’s the equivalent of eliminating 2 bins of garbage, which is the same weight as 2 old TV’s. (JouleBug)
4.7 thousand gallons of water have been saved. That’s the amount it takes to fill an average swimming pool 3 times, and equivalent to the amount down the drain if you were to flush a toilet 3,055 times. (JouleBug)
