There’s a huge amount of data out there about waste and recycling, but when you hear staggering numbers without context, it can be hard to wrap your head around what exactly those numbers mean. To help make this information more digestible, Earth911 has made many fact-o-grams, which help sum up a recycling figure with a few words and an image. We’ve selected some of them and compiled a list of the most popular fact-o-grams to give you a sense of how much we waste, how much we recycle and what impact recycling can have on daily life.
