Sick Idiot

Sorry everyone the Idiot is sick today and can’t post anything, so he asked me to let you know!

Remember today is Earth Day!
Bring your reusable cup to Starbucks and get some free coffee! Tomorrow Lowe’s will be giving away free tree seedlings, and Home Depot will be offering some awesome gardening workshops, and a kid’s workshop also! If you live near a National Park, now is the time to go! Free entrance through Sunday.

Did you know that the amount of aluminum we recycle in one year is enough to rebuild our entire airplane commercial fleet every six months?

Post some comments if you know of any other cool Earth Day facts!

  1. Here’s some fun ones:

    Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for three hours – it’s equivalent to half a gallon of gasoline.

    Earth Day is a relatively new holiday and was first celebrated on April 22 in 1970. More than 20 million Americans participated in this first Earth Day celebration

    Earth Day was founded by a senator of Wisconsin and the day is credited for creating the environmentalism movement.

    April 22 is the first official day of Spring in the Northern hemisphere and of Fall in the Southern hemisphere and was chosen to be Earth Day for this reason.

    Never underestimate the importance of recycling: if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year. Unfortunately only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled.

    More than 20,000,000 Hershey’s Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil. All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it.

    Only 11% of the earth’s surface is used to grow food.

    The patron Saint of animals and ecologists is St. Francis, and the first proclamation of Earth Day was made by the mayor of San Francisco in 1970.

    A highlight of the annual Earth Day ceremony at the United Nations is the ringing of the Peace Bell that was given to the UN by Japan. It is made from coins given by school children to further peace on our planet.

    Happy Earth Day!
