Infographic of 5 Crazy Ideas To Save The Environment

Infographic of 5 Crazy Ideas To Save The Environment | Air Pollution Control | Scoop.it
In a previous post we discussed five crazy (or not so crazy) ideas that could help to save the planet. In this post we’re displaying that information in the format of an infographic. What do you think of the infographic?
Linus Ridge's insight:

While some of these ideas may seem a little on the crazy side there are two which aren't too crazy in practice even though they may sound a little strange. Peeing in the shower and Resomation are actually quite sensible. Obviously it comes down to your personal choice when it comes to these things. Here is a link to blog post where all five of these ideas are discussed in more detail.

Tilinanu Orphanage Malawi

Tilinanu Orphanage Malawi | Air Pollution Control | Scoop.it
Sly Filters have been proudly supporting Tilinanu Orphanage in Malawi for more than eight years and are excited to be publishing their Corporate Social Responsibility Proposal here on our blog.
Linus Ridge's insight:

Although this isn't actually related to Air Pollution Control I wanted to share this as it's a charity that we have been supporting for the past eight years.


They have just published their Corporate Social Responsibility Proposal and it provides companies with a great oppertunity to support a vert good cause while also gaining themselves some excellent PR. It's a Win-Win situation.


Please could you rescoop this and share it on your social channels.


Thanks, Linus Illsley-Ridge
