Happy Earth Day

                      I hope everyone has a wonderful day! 
earth day fact:
Did you know that if everyone in the United States recycled their newspapers, the lives of 41,000 trees would be spared.  One single tree can detoxify the air of up to 60 pounds of pollutants.
                                                             Recycle A Handbook for Kids - Fun Earth Day Books for Kids
Discussing paper, plastic, glass, cans, and polystyrene, the author describes how to recycle, why it's necessary, and its benefits. The captioned panels and running text stress the need for reducing waste and saving natural resources. The book ends with a mention of the ozone layer and the limited potential for recycling polystyrene, followed by 14 facts about garbage.
