Be green while you train

June 8, 2008

Did you know ?

  • Plastic water bottles produced for U.S. consumption take 1.5 million barrels of oil per year. That much energy could power 250,000 homes or fuel 100,000 cars for a year, according to the resolution.
  • In roughly the last 10 years, the amount of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles going into landfills skyrocketed from 1,175 million to 3,900 million pounds.
  • Of the 30 billion plastic water bottles sold in the United States in 2005, only 12 percent were recycled.

Imagine if you added in all the bottles from soda, energy drinks, sports drinks, etc ! The numbers becomes staggering.
