Some interesting facts I learned about CDs and DVDs in general:
- A cd/dvd is considered a class 7 recyclable plastic
- To manufacture a pound of plastic (30 CDs per pound), it requires 300 cubic feet of natural gas, 2 cups of crude oil and 24 gallons of water
- It is estimated that AOL alone has distributed more than 2 billion CDs. That is the natural gas equivalent of heating 200,000 homes for 1 year
- It is estimated that it will take over 1 million years for a CD to completely decompose in a landfill
So c'mon people, let's do our part and recycle, even if it's a hassle to ship them.
