Infographic: Green Manufacturing Over Time

Infographic: Green Manufacturing Over Time | Social Mercor | 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...

How One STEM School Aims to Lower the Achievement Gap

How One STEM School Aims to Lower the Achievement Gap | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. is suffering from a shortage of applicants in the science, technology, engineering and math fields -- or STEM. This is especially true for non-Asian minorities and low-income students, who are statistically less likely to be exposed to STEM professionals, have access to STEM education and hold STEM jobs. According to a recent study by Change the Equation, a non-profit initiative to improve STEM education in the United States, there are two job openings for every unemployed STEM professional. A 2011 report from the Department of Commerce projects that STEM jobs will grow by 17 percent by 2018, compared to 9.8 percent for non-STEM occupations.

Wonderful program. It would be ideal for companies like Keurig to consider Universal Design, and all users while designing their products, such as tactile guidance and voice navigation built-in/ embedded in their touch screen on coffeemakers. Until then, students applying their ingenuity for the purpose of access and awareness is excellent!
