Leaves alone account for 75% of our solid waste in the fall.By turning down your central heating thermostat one degree, fuel consumption is cut by as much as 10%.63,000 square miles of Rainforests are being destroyed each year.Every year approximately four billion tons of carbon accumulates in the air each year, about 30% of this comes directly from the continued burning of the rainforests.40% of America's rivers are too polluted for fishing, swimming, or aquatic life.In any given year, about 25% of beaches in the US are under advisories or are closed at least one time because of water pollution.Asian rivers are the most polluted in the world.
