Environment

The ever increasing need for natural resources and their diminishing supply has made recycling one of the most important movements of the twenty-first century. We understand that companies can have a large impact on our environment so at Coco Brooks we make green choices wherever possible.

Did you know...

  • Aluminum takes 500 years to break down in a landfill
  • When you throw away one aluminum can, you waste as much energy as if you had filled the can half full of gasoline and poured it into the ground
  • There is no limit to the number of times aluminum can be recycled
  • 2 out of 3 pounds of new steel are produced from old steel
  • You can make 20 steel cans out of recycled material with the same amount of energy it takes to make 1 new one
  • For every ton of paper recycled 17 trees are saved
  • 17 trees can absorb 250lbs of carbon dioxide from the air each year while burning that same ton of paper would create 1500lbs of carbon dioxide
  • If all of the newspaper in Canada was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year
