This trend is only set to accelerate, so it’s high time to develop solutions to make our cities more sustainable. CityTownInfo just launched a new infographic that shows how greener cities can pave the way to a sustainable future – check it out after the break.

Mixed use and density does lower resources per capita.  But this is the first estimate I've seen.

Infographic: How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Infographic: How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree | Social Media, Communications and Creativity | 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.

An Infographic Breakdown Of The World's Greenest Cities

An Infographic Breakdown Of The World's Greenest Cities | Social Media, Communications and Creativity | Scoop.it

This infographic focuses on the cities of London, New York, Vancouver, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Stockholm.

 

It’s hard to quantify what makes a city "greener" than any other metropolis, but there are some clues: car ownership, green space, bicycle usage, solar installations, recycling, and water consumption are just a few factors that create environmentally responsible cities.

An infographic from HouseTrip lays out what different cities are doing in an easy-to-read format. A handful of major world cities stand out as leaders. This infographic focuses on London, New York, Vancouver, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Stockholm; three of these cities made it into our top 10 smart cities list (two others were runners-up). Each of these cities have statistics worth mentioning. Amsterdam has one bike for every 0.73 people, Copenhagen has legislation requiring all new buildings to have green roofs (this will add 5,000 square meters of vegetation), and only 44% of New Yorkers own a car, compared to 95% of Americans overall.

Water: Global facts + statistics [infographic]

Water: Global facts + statistics [infographic] | Social Media, Communications and Creativity | Scoop.it

Ever notice how we ask for “just water” at a restaurant? Like the source of all life is somehow inferior to soda or a glass of wine (both of which are mostly water)? A new infographic gives you just about every fact you need to know about water… including the ways we’re wasting it.

Take a look, and stop by the original article to share any other facts about water you wished more people knew.

INFOGRAPHIC: Green Movement Status Check, Post-Earth Day

INFOGRAPHIC: Green Movement Status Check, Post-Earth Day | Social Media, Communications and Creativity | Scoop.it
The U.S. green movement has been a rollercoaster of support, progress, opposition and steps backward. So what’s really going on right now?

The unstable economy has pressured many American businesses to tighten their purses and take a conservative, skeptical approach to implementing green initiatives in their operations. While working toward energy conservation means a more sustainable business and can lower long-term costs, financial payoff won’t necessarily come along for years, sometimes decades.

But slow growth doesn’t necessarily mean we’re abandoning the green front. In many cases, it means the early surge of green projects from the turn of the decade have been approaching completion between 2011-2012. The U.S. Green Building Council reported that the existing buildings certified under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program exceeded the number of new construction projects this year for the first time. In sheer footage, the USGBC recorded over 1.8 billion square feet of LEED-certified space. This means the U.S. is now seeing a record number of real, functioning buildings designed for reduced carbon emissions and sustainability...
