Infographic: How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Infographic: How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree | scatol8® | Scoop.it

The tinsel is undraped and the ornaments carefully stores away. All that is left is a dry, majestic, 6-foot-tall Douglas Fir in the corner of your living room. Every year, an estimated 30 million of these fragrant, fresh, Christmas trees are sold in the United States, but as much as 10% of them go straight to landfills—never to be recycled.

Infographic: Charting the History of Agriculture & Climate Change

Infographic: Charting the History of Agriculture & Climate Change | scatol8® | Scoop.it

A new infographic that maps the progress of the agricultural sector in addressing climate change throughout the history of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) negotiations has been launched on the sidelines of this year’s climate summit in Doha.


“Agriculture is already being hard hit by climate change and the outlook is even worse. However there are options for adaptation, and some of these even bring mitigation co-benefits,” said Bruce Campbell, Director of the Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security research program.
Agriculture supports over 1 million of the world’s rural poor, yet is responsible for 80% of overall deforestation and 31% of total greenhouse gas emissions. Increasing agricultural yields and improving farming techniques are some the ways that could help reduce its overall contribution to climate change.
In addition to tracking the developments and effects climate change has had on global farming communities, the infographic also calls for the creation of a Work Program on Agriculture under the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technology Advice (SBSTA) – a scientific advisory group to the UNFCCC. A new work program could document and share knowledge of improved practices to inform decision-making on agriculture and climate change to the UNFCCC’s Conference of the Parties.


The infographic was created by Farming First, a coalition of farmers associations, engineers and scientists, in partnership with the CGIAR Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security research program (CCAFS) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT).

Diagramming the appliances that use the most energy

Diagramming the appliances that use the most energy | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Where does my electricity bill go?

The data included in our infographic is an average of our most recently tested appliances.

Our expert testers also identify the most efficient models on the market, which can save you significantly on running costs even against the average power consumption.

 

Electricity usage derived from product testing between 2011 and 2012. The infographic shows the hot water heater using the lion's share of the power. However this is based on electric hot water heaters using an off-peak rate. If you have solar, heat pump or high-efficiency gas, then your water heating costs are likely to be much lower.

As a general rule, the older your appliances are, the more likely they are to use more energy. For example in late-2009 over 50% of new TVs had an energy rating of less than 4 stars. By mid-2011 this number had dropped to less than 10%...

Deconstructing Construction Waste & Saving Big with Modular [infographic]

Deconstructing Construction Waste & Saving Big with Modular [infographic] | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Construction accounts for 24 percent of all solid waste produced in the U.S. That’s approximately 160 million tons of construction and demolition debris created every year.


Reducing construction waste can have a tremendous impact on landfill costs, not to mention the obvious benefit to our environment. One solution for greener building is modular construction. Modular is inherently more resource efficient, and can dramatically reduce C&D waste.

This infographic shares some staggering construction waste figures and the waste and money savings that can result from modular building...

Go Green!  Bountiful Benefits of Responsible Recycling - infographic | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Wood, plastic, paper, rock, and metal are commonly thrown away after a construction project. If they were recycled, though, they could make mulch, fuel, furniture, toilet paper, newspapers, and even roofs.

Infographic: The Impact Of EV Solar Charging Stations

Infographic:   The Impact Of EV Solar Charging Stations | scatol8® | Scoop.it

There are more benefits to driving a solar charged vehicle than meets the eye.


As technology for these vehicles improve, so will their travel distance and accessibility, as charging stations are becoming more common, with locations at airports, malls, and even college campuses.

Electric vehicles are good for the environment, and recent studies have shown they also play a role in our health. 


This infographic outlines their benefits, compares emissions from the different types of charging stations, maps locations across the US, and summarizes the positive impact electric vehincles have on the economy, environment and our health.

INfographic: Green Manufacturing Over Time

INfographic: Green Manufacturing Over Time | scatol8® | Scoop.it

In the last decade alone, the worldwide demand for the manufacture of goods has risen, resulting in increased levels of C02 emissions in the world's atmosphere. In 2010, 33,000 tons of C02 released into the atmosphere as a result of manufacturing.


If we don't reduce this number, these greenhouse gases will change the world for good. So, what are companies doing in the way of green manufacturing? This infographic investigates this, while reviewing the numerous positives of turning to a deeper shade of green.

It also shares what consumers are saying to green companies, their demands for more sustainable products, and the promise of safety, health and energy saving and even during an economic downturn. Also indicated on this infographic is the increased power of consumers to make companies more eco-friendly, and manufacturers are now realizing the value of eco-friendly companies, contributing to a more sustainable shared future...

Waste-to-Energy: Green Power Generation

Waste-to-Energy: Green Power Generation | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Waste-to-energy (WTE) is the process of creating energy in the form of electricity or heat from the incineration of a waste source. But how does the process generate green power?

A form of energy recovery, such processes produce electricity directly through combustion or produce a combustible fuel commodity.

The 100-Second Guide To Gamification In Education | Edudemic

The 100-Second Guide To Gamification In Education | Edudemic | scatol8® | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway

There is a solid infographic about the value of gamification.  I feel that points out a value that many articles on gamification do not.  Loss Aversion is critical.  Students don't want to lose what they earned.  If they lose a level, rewards, a score, etc. by not checking in, then they will keep returning to the water cooler of learning.  This is a powerful motivator that can be leveraged for value.
