How We Will Make a Difference
Transcript of How We Will Make a Difference
We decided to do recycling because so many bottles are burned each year and release toxic fumes into the air that decrease the ozone layer.
The normal person accumulates 4.5 pounds of trash every day – about 1.5 tons of trash per year. The EPA estimates that 75 percent of trash is recyclable, but only about 30 percent is actually recycled.
The Out Come
We took the bottles that we collected over the few days to McCoy Recycling Center. We recycled about 32 pounds of bottles and got 39.10$ for bottles.
Were gonna make a difference by finding bottles that are not being recycled. Were going to take them to the recycling center and give the money that we received from recycling to the food bank to help pay for meals for other people
The ozone layer is a layer in the atmosphere that protect us from the radiation of the sun.
Why it matters
The Food Bank
The ozone layer is important because without it the radiation from the sun would give us skin cancer and we would eventually die from it
We gave the money to the food bank and the money will be used to feed people who cant afford food.
why should we be worried
we should be worried about the decreasing ozone layer because at our current rate of toxins and other materials being released into the air the ozone layer would be depleted in a few years, or even less than that.
What we Expected
We wanted to help the community and the environment and we accomplished our goal by recycling and helping people who cant afford food.
In 2004, 55 billion aluminum cans were landfill, littered or incinerated. This is enough cans to fill the Empire State Building twenty times.
All of us told our friends and family to help us and to spread the word about our project.

During the time it takes you to read this sentence, 50,000 more 12-ounce aluminum cans are made. Let’s recycle those cans.
