     #1      Did you know that only 1 out of 5 plastic bottles gets recycled in our country?!  Tell your friends and family to make sure those plastic bottles end up in the recycle bin and not the trash can, like these did!

    #2      Even better, use a stainless steel water bottle. Your water will taste better and you’ll never need a wasteful plastic bottle again.

    #3      Did you know that even when electrical appliances aren't being used they are actually using some electricity? In fact if all the battery chargers, cell phone chargers and small appliances in US homes were unplugged when not in use, we would be able to shut down 17 coal-fired air polluting power plants. So when you're at home ask your parents what things you can unplug when you're not using them.

    unplug it

    I mean, come on, how hard is it to plug something back in? Or would you rather we kept this plant burning?
