I found this infographic very informative and useful. The aim of this, originally, is to know which plastic is “best for you”. We, at ecogreenlove, think plastic is no good for anybody since is at the moment out of our hands and polluting our bodies and our planet. But, is important to know the different types of plastic and the meaning behind those numbers inside of the “Recycling” symbol to know what and why we should avoid them.

In 2010, around one-third of the food produced in the United States was not consumed, and ended up being wasted. That is a troubling statistic, and represents a food waste crisis that if left ignored will continue to burn holes in the pockets of families, and contribute to waste and the myriad problems it causes our planet.
One of the first things you can do to cut food waste in your home is to stop treating the “best-before,” “use-by,” and “sell-by” labels as gospel that determine when food must instantly been thrown out. These labels are used for shelving and inventory purposes in stores, and you should always trust your eyes and nose before you trust a number on a package. Consider using food rather than throwing it out, unless your senses tell you otherwise!
Make your meal plans and take stock of what you have in your fridge and pantry before you go shopping, and shop accordingly. Consider joining a CSA to take advantage of freshness, and buy your groceries a few times a week and when needed, rather than all at once.

For our third exclusive infographic, we decided to picked up on an issue that really has a visible impact in our lives: Consumerism.
Of course, we all enjoy shopping around, and get access to worldwide items, bought trough a simple click of a button. Or drive around in our brand new cars, feeling free, independent and happy. Or go to some exotic restaurant, and taste the mysterious flavors of foreign cuisine.
But, here’s the thing: when we look up at the numbers behind the impact of those everyday pleasures, and think about the ongoing debate about climate change and the all the other environmental impacts caused by that lifestyle, one thing gets clear: we need to change.
Take a look at some of the numbers we’re bringing you here, and think about it.
Or better yet, act upon it.
A film by brother/sister duo, Sam and Kate Fulbright to take a closer look at what climate change really means in the United States, and dive beyond the daunting numbers and graphs to meet the people and communities affected by the problem of climate change.
