We held our first annual shred event Saturday Earth Day April 22nd and despite the continuous rainfall it did not stop the residence of Leesburg from safely shredding their paper documents. The numbers are in and it was a huge success: 60 residence shred over 4000 lbs of paper!
This translates into:
34 saved trees
760 gallons of oil
6 cubic yards of landfill space
8000 kilowatts of energy
14,000 gallons of water
120 pounds less of air pollution
The 34 trees saved can absorb a total of 500 pounds of carbon dioxide from the air each year. Burning that same ton of paper would create 3000 pounds of carbon dioxide.
