Reduce- Reuse- Recycle

On our first lecture with this topic, our lecturer showed us a few videos which informed us about global warming and the Reduce- Reuse- Recycle topic.

Here is some interesting facts I'd like to share

  1. US are 5% of the world population but they use 30% of the worlds resources.
  2. 80% of the original rain forest's have been destroyed.
  3. BFR (on of the worst chemicals used to fire proof stuff) is used on pillows and computers. This chemical can kill the brain.
  4. 4 billion LBS of pollution is from the U.S factories.
  5. 99% of materials are trashed within 6 months.
The production line is as follows.

  1. extraction
  2. production
  3. distribution
  4. consumption
  5. disposal
And we as consumers have the most power but do not seem to be doing anything about it!!
