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?
According to my little recycler, a newspaper can only be recycled 7 times. Glass can be recycled over and over, forever. She googled this and found some websites for you. http://www.chevroncars.com/learn/wondrous-world/recycling-facts

Not sure if this will help or not, but i found this website- http://www.nrdc.org/greensquad/intro/intro_4.asp#
Once you click on Let's get started, you can go to the cafeteria and it has some interesting facts. It won't let me copy and paste. Hopefully, you can use some of this info.
