The Pacific Institute estimates that every used plastic water bottle uses ¼ of its capacity in oil to manufacture, fill, transport, and dispose of it
The ground absorbs 47% of the sun’s energy that reaches planet Earth. This amount of energy represents 500 times more than mankind needs every year.
The 10 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1990, and the global sea level has already risen by 4-8 inches in the past century.
Buildings in the U.S. consume 71% of national electricity and account for 65% of the waste output. They are also responsible for 39% of carbon emissions.
Installing a geothermal system in a typical home is equal, in greenhouse gas reduction, to planting an acre of trees, or taking two cars off the road.
