What if Environmentalism Were as Big as Social Media? [INFOGRAPHIC]

What if everyone across the globe used his or her social media influence to help the planet?

The impact would be huge, according to a recent infographic from Recyclebank, a company that rewards green consumers with discounts and deals from local and national businesses.

The data encourages the connected generation to use social networks and technology for a positive effect on the earth. For example, if each Pinterest user shared one green idea per month, there would be 12 million more environmentally-conscious tips being passed around.

The efforts can be carried offline, too. According to Recyclebank, if everyone on Facebook shortened his or her shower by one minute, we would save enough water to fill 1,136,364 Olympic-sized swimming pools.

What relationship do you see between social media and helping the planet? What can you do to make an impact? Let us know in the comments.
