This infographic provided by Half Price contains some eye-opening information about which nations rank highest for energy efficiency. For instance, did you know that the USA doesn’t even make the top 10? It ranks the energy efficiency of each country on the list for categories such as industry, construction and transportation.
Did you know that since factory farms and slaughterhouses are highly unsanitary, this contributes to 5,000 deaths from food borne illnesses a year in the U.S.? At the same time, sustainable farms produce foods without hazardous chemicals, leading to food with higher levels of antioxidants which can help fight against cancer. Factory farms pollute the air, land, and water with millions of gallons of animal waste.
