Earth911.com article about the top 10 greenest states. No surprises here, but my state is not in the top 10 :( Some interesting stats on recycling too, for example "Every year Americans use 1 BILLION plastic shopping bags, creating 300,000 tons of landfill waste" .
Infographic was in the metronews. It is a simple breakdown of some the processes to recycle four materials; aluminum, plastic, glass, and paper. It also has some of the shocking stats about recycling in Europe and the USA. This infographic shows that it is cheaper to use recycled materials, and that we are not recycling enough. Of course the best solution in the first place is not to create the waste in the first place.
