Our Laboratory here is our first line of defense against the evildoers of the world. Even babies have a way of crapping up the world if we let them.

Did you know it takes five hundred years for one disposable diaper to decompose?

Tsk Tsk! There's a lot of work to be done to change people's ways of doing things, as well as changing the way we change babies, isn't there?

It doesn't take much to do a lot ... either to be a crummy person or be an effective Crumb Stoppers Secret Agent. You don't have a baby in your family? 

NO PROBLEM!!!

Each of us generates about 4.4 pounds of waste per person per day; but recycling and composting recovered 24 percent of our municipal solid waste in 1997. That's around 49 million tons!!!

Recycling all of your home's waste newsprint, cardboard, glass, and metal can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 850 pounds a year.

Recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television set for three hours.

It is estimated that 150 million computers will be discarded in the United States alone, enough to fill a hole one acre in area and 3.5 miles deep. 

And there are many organizations, like TURN Community Services, that can use your donation and recycle them.

Every Sunday, the United States wastes nearly 90% of the recyclable newspapers. This wastes about 500,000 trees.

Every year, Americans throw out 24 million tons of grass clippings, leaves, and other yard waste.
