New York City Transit (NYC Transit) is viewed as the world’s most expansive subway system due to its 468 subway stations, the most of any transit system in the world. It is also one of the world’s busiest subways, transporting 1.6 billion passengers annually. While the system emits 2 million tons of greenhouse gases each year, it prevents approximately 17 million tons of greenhouse gases annually, ‘making it one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas avoidance in the United States.’

Americans generate more trash than anyone else on the planet: more than 7 pounds per person each day. About 69% of that trash goes immediately into landfills. And most landfill trash is made up of containers and packaging — almost all of which should be recycled.
