10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission
The statistics about how much we throw away and bury is staggering. An average person throws away over 1,600 pounds of trash per year. Americans as a whole generate enough waste each year to circle the earth 24 times. 75% of all that trash is easily recyclable, but only 30% of it actually gets recycled. One rescued wine bottle saves enough energy to light a 100-watt light bulb for four hours, power a computer for 30 minutes, or a television for 20 minutes.
Thank you so much for joining our 10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission.
We were honored to be selected as our state's recycling small business of the year (awarded by the Arizona Recycling Coalition). Funny part about this one is that they asked Ray to design the awards then told him Refresh was getting one, woohoo!
