Lastly to address the paper recycling issue discussed in Tuesday's class,

-Recycled paper generates 95% less air pollution: each ton saves 60 lbs. of air pollution (Center for Ecological Technology)
-Recycling of each ton of paper saves 17 trees and 7000 gallons of water (EPA)
-Every year enough paper is thrown away to make a 12' wall from New York to California
