Best Environment Infographic Ever

  Seriously. This is the best environment infographic ever. Politicians and oil companies might waste time debating whether or not we’ve reached peak oil. What they ignore is that we run out completely in under 40 years’ time, by which time a third of the planet’s biodiversity will be lost. In the meantime, tantalum, that great […]

Growing E-Waste Epidemic (Infographic)

  E-waste isn’t a topic we cover often here on Planetsave, but it’s a big one. Where do you think all your electronics go when they get old (‘old’ being a couple of years these days)? We don’t like to think about it, but it’s important. A reader recently shared the great e-waste infographic below […]

Why "Global Warming is a Hoax" is a Completely Idiotic Idea (Infographic & Table)

  If global warming is a hoax, I’m a green alien from the planet Straftyorb. Seriously. Our media network founder, David Anderson, shared the infographic below on Facebook the other day.

Peak Oil Coming.. (Infographic)

I received this great infographic on Monday when I was in London for a CNBC/Harvard Business Review “Energy Opportunities” interview. So, after catching up on things over the past few days, I’m just now getting it up. It is really a great one, laying out where oil comes from, who’s using it, what we’re using it for, and the ever-important topic of… peak oil. Check it out:

Eco Wines Infographic

I don’t drink wine, or alcohol of any kind, myself, but I know a ton of people do. And I know that not all wines are the same… when it comes to their eco-friendliness. Happy some folks went and made this eco wine guide in infographic form.

We have featured a number of WellHome’s infographics on our site and, as a result, the folks there decided to ask us what matters we thought were most important at the moment and worth creating infographics about. I supplied them with my feedback and they’ve gone ahead and made an infographic on some of the topics I thought was hot and worthy of their time.

Plastic {Infographic}

Plastic — it is everywhere and, while it has helped humanity in some ways, it is also wreaking havoc on ecosystems and organisms around the world (including humans). Here is an interesting infographic with some stunning and disturbing information on how much plastic we use, what problems it’s linked to, plastic in the ocean, BPA, and plastic’s ridiculously long lifespan. The most interesting line of the infographic, in my opinion, is this one: “every piece of plastic made still exists today.” But, really, there’s a ton of interesting info here:

A new friend recently shared this recycling infographic, thinking it might be a good fit for Planetsave — didn’t take long for me to say, “great idea!” All kinds of useful or just plain interesting info on recycling, recycled product, and related info here. One of the most interesting points, in my opinion, is how much Japan composts, but there’s a lot more info that sort of blows me away as well. Enjoy! (& share the infographic with your friends.)
