Some tips and tricks for a positive effect on the environment

With Earth Day in mind we would like to provide you with some amazingly simple facts, tips and tricks which you can apply right away on yourself. Below you can see some interesting facts about modern day society and its impact on the global environment.

For instance, did you know that if every active Facebook user would shower 1 minute less than they normally do, we would save enough (clean!) drinking water to fill more than 1 million Olympic swimming pools. And if you’re a Nike+ user, you could potentially save over $400.000,- on electricity bills if you’d ran outside for one day instead of on a treadmill.

Just a couple of simple facts which make you realize how little effort it would take for every individual to have a more positive impact on the environment! (Many thanks to recyclebank)
