As you are coloring these wonderful pages, think about where the paper came from. This might be a sad thought because as college students, we often have to print pages upon pages for class. But there are so many ways you can combat this.
Remember the wonderful words on these pages and keep Earth in mind every day, not just on the one day dedicated to Earth. Then consider how you can make a change.
Maybe you push for the use of recycled paper.
Maybe you decide to start composting at home.
Maybe you decide to garden.
Whatever that thing is, I encourage you to choose something to start doing today. I challenge you to stick with it until it becomes habit, so you can contribute to a healthier earth.
Also, for your information: Each ton (2000 pounds) of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, three cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents a 64% energy savings, a 58% water savings, and 60 pounds less of air pollution.
