Earth Day 2016

By : Mister Kleen April 22, 2016 Comments off

Today is the 46th anniversary of Earth Day! The very first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970 in the U.S., and was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson.As a certified GS-42 Green Kleening company, Earth Day is a special day for us at Mister Kleen. We are extremely passionate about sustainability, especially within the facilities we Kleen (clean).

To carry out our annual tradition and celebration at Mister Kleen, we are featuring some interesting facts below that may help you generate some ideas to be more sustainable this 2016:


Recycling one aluminum can save enough electricity to run a TV for 3 hours


Recycling one glass bottle or jar saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours


Recycling one ton of plastic saves the equivalent of 1,000–2,000 gallons of gasoline


More than 30 million trees are cut down to produce a year’s supply of newspapers


A ton of paper made from recycled paper saves:


    • 7,000 gallons of water
    • Between 17 and 31 trees
    • 60 pounds of air pollutants


Recycling a pound of steel saves enough energy to light a 60-watt light bulb for 26 hours


Americans recycle only 5% of all the plastics produced in this country


Americans use 100 million steel cans and 200 million aluminum beverage cans every day


One drip per second from a faucet wastes 540 gallons of water a year


It takes between 400 and 500 years for a Styrofoam cup to decompose. It takes an orange peel six months to decompose

Today, almost 22% of the glass produced in the United States is recycled


Happy Earth Day!!
