Environmental Impact

In 2017, we recovered the carbon equivalent of over 9 billion pounds! That’s a LOT!

To make 9 billion more comprehensible, think of it this way: The average American household has a carbon footprint of 41,900 pounds per year. With your help, we kept the carbon footprint equivalent of more than 214,797 households from reaching the atmosphere last year alone. Or, maybe you prefer automobile analogies. The staggering 9 billion pounds of CO2 is the equivalent of more than 858,450 cars driving for a year.
