ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS

By Aisha Al Hajeri, NourChehabeddine, Paula Fronda, Sana Samhouri, Caitlin Taylor


Deforestation

DEFORESTATION

  • What is deforestation?It’s the removal of trees mostly because of human activities.

  • How much paper do you use a day? Can you think of where this paper might come from?

  • What can we do to help?-RECYCLE, RECYCLE, RECYCLE.-Plant a new tree for every one we cut down.-Always check your desks for scrap paper. Don’t just throw it away!

    What else you YOU think we could do?


Water conservation

WATER CONSERVATION

  • How many of you keep the water running while you brush your teeth?

  • 97% of the world's water is salty or undrinkable. Another 2% is locked in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just 1% for consumption by all living creatures, including plants and animals.

  • 31.41 gallons a day and about 11,465.06 gallons a year (and olympic swimming pools holds about 600,000 gallons!)

  • Water-saving tips: -Wash your fruits/veggies in a bowl of water rather than running water.-In the shower, turn off the tap when shampooing.-Don’t waste water! Desalination of water is a long and expensive process!

Fun facts

FUN FACTS 

  • Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for three hours.

  • Only 11% of the earth's surface is used to grow food.

  • If every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year.

  • If everyone in the US flushed the toilet just one less time per day, we could save a lake full of water about one mile long, one mile wide and four feet deep.
