Earth Day is EVERY Day

Here are some interesting facts about Earth Day: 
• Recycling one aluminum can is the equivalent to saving a 1/2 gallon of gasoline. 
• Think about planting a tree- An average size tree produces enough oxygen in one year to keep a family of four breathing. 
• Earth Day is the largest secular holiday in the world with over 500 million celebrating annually in 175 countries. 
• Only 11% of the Earths surface is used to grow food. 
• The Earth is really not round, its actually slightly pear-shaped and weighs about 6,588,000,000,000 million tons.
