Every year a reported 850 million golf balls are produced. Were that bounty divided equally among people living in the U.S., every resident—from sea to shining sea—would receive 2.7 golf balls. Heck, the Octomom household alone would get 40.5 balls.
So far this year, more than 63 million bicycles have been produced (check out the real-time ticker).
All of these staggering numbers are for one year, folks. Imagine the stuff that's already out there in the world. In garages and storage facilities and athletic sheds. In the bottoms of closets. In schoolyards and backyards and junkyards. In gutters and sewer drains.
No sense it letting it all go to waste. Pull your smock over your head, pop on your wacky cap and get to repurposing.
