7 Items being Banned around the World to save the Planet
SMPP Software ProviderModern life can be chaotic, so it’s no wonder that science and commerce have teamed up to provide us with no-fuss products to help the day pass smoothly. Unfortunately, the environmental toll of some of these innovations can be enormous. It’s no wonder that eco-conscious governments and municipalities are using legislation to temper the damage we’re inflicting on our planet. In Europe, banned items range from the mundane to the ridiculous: guidelines set by the EU have made high-powered (and underperforming) vacuum cleaners a thing of the past, while the French have outlawed the farming of domestic frog legs. Bangladesh was the first nation to ban plastic shopping bags, way back in 2002. Americans are waking up to the damage and beginning to legislate against it. President Obama recently signed a ban on microbeads (the tiny plastic pellets used in many exfoliators and toothpastes) to prevent them getting washed away into rivers and lakes, where they can poison marine life. Areas such as Concord, Massachusetts and New York City have led the way in reducing other wastage, banning plastic water bottles and Styrofoam respectively.

What is an Infographic?

Information graphics or infographics are graphic (realistic) visual representations of data, information or knowledge intended to present information clearly and quickly. They can enhance discernment by using illustrations to upgrade the human visual framework's capacity to see examples and patterns. Infographics have advanced as of late to be for mass correspondence, and in this manner are composed with less suppositions about the perusers information base than different sorts of perceptions.
