Fields of Green (Part II))

Posted Aug 24 2008 4:07pm

Continuing sage of my coverage of the group of baseball players Gone Green ! I'm covering this as two of my biggest passions (baseball and helping the environment) have combined in this fine group of gentlemen . Go SAWX !!



Of course its cool to find other guys interested in the environment!



This is how the prescribe to get to "1st Base"



First Base: Hitting a seeing-eye SINGLE up the middle!

Recycle! Get the whole family to participate!



Twenty years ago there were only 1,000 curbside programs in the U.S. Today there are more than 10,000. The rate of recycling has doubled during the past 15 years. But still... ONLY 32% of us recycle!

If we increase the recycling rate just 10 percent for aluminum and steel cans, plastic and glass containers, newsprint and corrugated packaging, we would save enough energy to provide electricity to 1.8 million Americans for an entire year.



Here’s a clear mental picture of what adding Recycling to our line-up can do?!



Recycling really improves the environment! Check this out... recycling:

-Prevents the emission of many greenhouse gases and water pollutants

-Saves energy

-Supplies valuable raw materials to industry

-Creates jobs

-Encourages development of greener technologies

-Conserves resources for our children's future

-Reduces the need for new landfills



As always, you can see what you can personally do by Going Green in Your Home!
