CO2 (3 US cars emissions/year)** • Water Saved – 42,613 gallons** • Solid Waste Reduced – 8,547 lbs. (not land filled or incinerated)** Deisel/CO2 • Diesel Saved – 597,222 gallons*** • CO2 Saved – 6,689 Tons*** *Assuming 15% post-consumer recycled content average. Calculations derived using the Environmental Defense Paper Calculator Tool. **Assuming 16,666 lbs. cardboard with 65% post-consumer recycled content average. Calculations derived using the Environmental Defense Paper Calculator Tool. ***Assuming 75 miles traveled to each delivery location. Average ton-miles traveled per gallon of diesel: 60; pounds of CO2 per gallon of diesel: 22.4. (Source: Bureau of Transportation Statistics Data for Truck Freight.
