The Cost of Litter [Infographic]

Research by finance experts Money Guru shows that 62% of the population will throw litter away at some point, but it is a telling fact that only 28% admit to it.

Chewing gum, cigarette butts, fast food containers and plastic bottles are the most likely things to be littered. Much of this waste finds its way into our rivers and from there into our oceans and when you consider that this plastic is virtually indestructible then you can see why we have such a huge problem.

There are over 38 million plastic bottles used every day in the UK with only just over ½ of these ever making into recycling, along with 200 million cigarette butts littered each and every day, and an estimated 10 million tonnes of waste from the fast food industry then perhaps you can begin to see the extent of the problem.

What happens when you donate a Vehicle? [Infographic]

If you have a needless truck, car or any other type of vehicle that’s outlived its usefulness, you have several options. You could try to sell it yourself, but depending on the car’s state, that could be easier said than done. You could have the car scrapped, like the approximately 12 million cars that are discarded each year to be recycled — but you probably won’t receive much of a return on your investment that way, and it isn’t the most environmentally friendly choice. Donating your car to charity, however, can be a great way to rid yourself of an unnecessary car no matter what state it’s in, while also possibly getting something back in the form of a tax deduction.
