What makes urban dwellers happy?

Apparently, the perception-reality gap is what is really interesting the city governments. Happiness is a fleeting commodity in reality, it comes and goes, but the perception of happiness is the real bottom-line driver for cities and their branding.

Virtual Water: Motion Graphics | green infographics | Scoop.it

Most of the water we use - 92 % of it - is used in food production. Most of this water is managed by the world’s farmers. With the help of science and technology they have performed greater and greater miracles in improving water productivity – in getting more crops per drop.

The good news is that each one of us can also make the world a little more water secure, ready to face the needs of our peak population future.

Infographic: Acting Green vs Buying Green

Infographic: Acting Green vs Buying Green | green infographics | Scoop.it

Green products enable us to live healthier, more efficient lifestyles – but even if you’ve upgraded every light bulb and appliance in your house to the most environmentally-friendly model, you can still eek out even more efficiency by adopting greener habits.

For example, you use the same amount of water with a low-flow shower head in a 15 minute shower, as a 9 minute shower with a regular shower head. If you also limited the amount of your shower in combination with a low-flow fixture, you are saving a ton! Check out eLocal‘s infographic on Acting Green vs. Buying Green after the break for more ways to lower your carbon footprint by living a greener lifestyle...

The Life of a T-Shirt [Infographic]

The Life of a T-Shirt [Infographic] | green infographics | Scoop.it
The textiles industry is one of the biggest contributors to landfill waste in both the UK and the US.

The fast fashion model that has developed within our consumerist society is promoting negative consumer behaviour across the globe. Throwaway fashion has become the norm, with customers spending minimal amounts of money on a garment that has an unbelievably short life span, meaning it will no doubt end up in the bin.

This infographic, designed by myself for Urban Times in collaboration with TextĂžure, provides an insight into the statistics behind the life of a t-shirt (bare in mind that it does not include the entire apparel industry), revealing some shocking facts about the water and energy consumption during the production of a simple t-shirt. It also provides some simple yet effective ways in which everyone can help.

Infographic: Why Reuse A Cup? | green infographics | Scoop.it

Headed out to grab a cup of coffee this morning? Make sure you grab a reusable mug, too. If you think it doesn't really matter, think again.

According to this neat infographic, Americans use a whopping 25 billion paper cups each year! That adds up to 363 billion pounds of waste and the loss of more than 9 billion trees.

Bottom line: Every little cup adds up. Do your part to save trees, reduce pollution and minimize waste by bringing a reusable mug with you this morning — and don't forget to grab your reusable water bottle before you head out to lunch...
