The amount of paper recovered for recycling averaged 340 pounds for every person in the U.S. In 2009, a record-high 63.4 percent of the paper consumed in the U.S. was recovered for recycling. It was the first time the number was over 60 percent Every ton of paper recycled saves more than 3.3 cubic yards of landfill space By 2013, the paper industry’s goal is to recover 60 percent of all the paper Americans consume for recycling, which is approximately 60 million tons of paper One million tons of recovered paper is enough to fill more than 14,000 railroad cars More than 37 percent of the fiber used to make new paper products in the United States comes from recycled sources 87 percent (approximately 268 million) of Americans have access to curbside or drop-off paper recycling programs

When water is heated to its boiling point (100°C., 212°F., under standard pressure), it vaporizes to steam In 1513, while searching for the fountain of youth, the Spanish conquistador Ponce de Léon discovered Florida. Water covers about 70 percent of the earth's surface in the oceans, lakes, rivers, and glaciers Ninety-seven percent of the water on the planet is in the form of salt water. Only 3 percent is fresh, and two-thirds of that is ice The United States uses three times as much water a day as the average European country, and many, many times more water than most developing nations When cooled to its freezing temperature (0°C., 32°F., under standard pressure), water changes to a colorless, crystalline solid (ice) Water's composition by weight is one part of hydrogen to eight of oxygen (or 11.1 percent of hydrogen and about 88.9 percent of oxygen)

A jumping spider can jump 25X its own body length. On Earth, there are about 35,000 different varieties of spiders A spiders web is approximately .003MM in diameter The silk is made of proteins, and is both stronger and more flexible than steel of the same weight Many medical research centers study the microstructure of this silk, as it has the potential to be used in protective gear like bulletproof vests, and even artificial tendons In ancient European medicine, cobwebs were used on wounds to discourage infection Cobweb paintings are an old art form that originated in the 16th century in the Alps Today, fewer than one hundred of these paintings can be found, most of which are kept in private collections and are not open to the public

Butterflies range in size from a tiny 1/8 inch to a huge almost 12 inches Monarch butterflies journey from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico at 12MPH There are about 24,000 species of butterflies Many butterflies can taste with their feet to find out whether the leaf they sit on is good to lay eggs on to be their caterpillars' food or not There are more types of insects in one tropical rain forest tree than there are in the entire state of Vermont Many insects can carry 50 times their own body weight. This would be like an adult person lifting two heavy cars full of people Most insects are beneficial to people because they eat other insects, pollinate crops, are food for other animals, make products we use (like honey and silk) or have medical uses Butterflies and insects have their skeletons on the outside of their bodies, called the exoskeleton. This protects the insect and keeps water inside their bodies so they don’t dry out

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it feeds your body and mind with the necessary nutrients and energy to function throughout the day Sleeping the right amount can prevent sickness, obesity, high blood pressure, and injury Physical activity like aerobic exercise (walking, running), muscle-strengthening (weight-lifting) bone-strengthening (jumping rope yoga, Pilates, dancing) are beneficial to a healthy body The more fresh foods you consume, the healthier you will be Snacking is important.

This depletion of the forest continued until 1900 at which time the United States had fewer forests than ever before and less than we have today Our Present Forest About 30 percent of the 2.3 billion acres of land area (745 million acres) in the U.S. is forest today as compared to about one-half in 1630 (1.0 billion acres FSC Certified Forests facts 35.3 million acres certified in the US 174.7 million acres certified in the US and Canada 3.414 companies certified as of May 2013 in the US 4,401 companies Chain of Custody certified in the US and Canada Forests cover 30% of global landmass area 70% of terrestrial animals and plants live in forests Currently the worlds forests store 283 billion tons of carbon in their bio-mass

There are about 5000 varieties of ladybugs in the world In many cultures, ladybugs are considered good luck. Most people like them because they are pretty, graceful, and harmless to humans. But farmers love them because they eat aphids and other plant-eating pests. One ladybug can eat up to 5,000 insects in its lifetime! The name "ladybug" was coined by European farmers who prayed to the Virgin Mary when pests began eating their crops. After ladybugs came and wiped out the invading insects, the farmers named them "beetle of Our Lady." This eventually was shortened to "ladybug� A ladybug in flight beats its wings up to 85 times per second In 1999, NASA sent ladybugs and aphids up in the space shuttle to test their movements in zero gravity Ladybugs are happy in many different habitats, including grasslands, forests, cities, suburbs, and along rivers Seven-spotted ladybugs are native to Europe but were brought to North America in the mid1900s to control aphid populations

The main ice covered landmass is Antarctica at the South Pole, with about 90 percent of the world's ice (and 70 percent of its fresh water) Antarctica is covered with ice an average of 2,133 meters (7,000 feet) thick. If all of the Antarctic ice melted, sea levels around the world would rise about 61 meters (200 feet) The average temperature in Antarctica is -37째C, so the ice there is in no danger of melting At the other end of the world, the North Pole ice is not nearly as thick as at the South Pole In 1995 the Intergovernmental Agency issued a report which contained various projections of the sea level change by the year 2100. They estimate that the sea will rise 50 centimeters with the lowest estimates at 15 centimeters (6 inches) and the highest at 95 centimeters (37 inches) Ice caps are also called ice sheets or continental glaciers. They are composed of ice domes, ice lobes, and outlet glaciers and are surrounded by cold, ocean currents. As a result, the land is constantly being cooled. & the thickest parts of the ice cap is 2 miles below sea level Emperor Penguins often huddle together to keep warm in the cold temperatures of Antarctica and have no land based predators
