Need some fun facts for kids!

I'm making a large display board for my Litter Free Lunch Challenge.
(A litter free lunch challenge is encouraging kids to use reusable containers like thermos' instead of disposable things like drink boxes.
I want to put some "Fun Facts" that have to do with recycling and going green, but I need the facts to be ones that kids grades K-2 would understand & I would like to include pictures to represent the facts.
Does this make sense? I need simple and visual.
For example, I've found:
Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to run your TV for 3 hours.
The average school-age child generates 67 pounds of waste (often more than their own body weight!) per year (showing a picture of Dash from the Incredibles).
An average size elementary school accumulates 18,760 pounds of lunch waste in a year.
(might show a picture of 10 4 door compact cars to represent or 1 African Bush Elephant)
Anyone have any suggestions or ideas?
