Public Transportation Savings [Infographic]

In today’s modern world there are several “green” movements that are attempting to enrich the planet and make it a better, more sustainable place to live. Activities ranging from planting trees to using biodegradable or reusable grocery bags are among the ways that people are helping the environment, but one of the most vitally important ways to help involves getting from Point A to Point B: carpooling and public transportation.

Today’s infographic from creditdonkey.com outlines the positive impact that increased public transportation has made in the past few years. Thanks to so many people opting not to use their cars, as much as 37 million tons of CO2 are not released and 340 million gallons of fuel aren’t used annually. That’s a lot of saved money on gas!

If you live in a metropolitan area, public transportation is a great way to not only dip less into our natural resources but also to help potentially save a good deal of money on the cost of getting around, and carpooling can be equally as helpful for those that don’t live near public means of transportation.

For more information on the benefits of public transportation refer to the infographic below.

Fruits/Vegetables/Herbs: When Are They In Season? [infographic]

As the industrial and economic age of technology has evolved, so has the availability of food year-round. In fact, much of the produce found in giant supermarkets are now almost omnipresent. But to accept that these foods are of the utmost quality and quantity (by which I mean $) year-round is quite a fallacy. If you find yourself eating strawberries around Christmas time for instance, it’s most likely those strawberries were picked well over half a year ago and stored in some facility to keep until you bought them at your market. So what’s the problem? Why is it bad to eat any fruit I want, whenever I want?

Well, while there might not be anything incredibly wrong with it, if you buy your produce by the season, the chances that your fruits and vegetables being much cheaper, fresher, and tastier is much more likely. There’s a reason why most restaurants around the world buy by the season. Also, something is lost in both the flavor and nutrients when you artificially keep these foods ‘alive’ for that long. P.S. for all of you environmentally conscious folks, the carbon footprint that is produced from shipping and storing these fruits and vegetables year-round is quite substantial. So go ahead and visit your local produce market co-op farmers market community garden whatever and get some EATS! Or even better, grow your own!

Google has made search engine optimization, or SEO, one of the most important marketing avenues in modern times. Fueling almost all of Google’s profits, search marketing is now an established activity and has been figured out almost to a science. Although Google does change their ranking algorithms quiet frequently, it is still a very difficult task to organically make the first page of a search.

As Facebook was introduced to the masses and quickly gained their 500+ million user audience, social media marketing blew up. Now, in less than a decade, most established firms have an employee who’s main occupation is working on social media. Is social media worth it though? Can it prove itself as a viable marketing option vs SEO? Check out the video below and you may be surprised![MDGAdvertising]
