Mint is known for their infographics, and this new one dubbed Pooponomics, is one of the oddest yet. It comes from designer Shane Snow (aka @shanesnow on Twitter), and it is a fun look at the economics behind human waste. Almost everyone in the U.S. flushes a toilet once a day, but we do not think much beyond that point about where all the human waste goes. This infographic has a variety of facts regarding the costs associated with human waste, including information on the water/sewer industry, diapers, and toilet paper. At the end it shows information on the amount of water and money one household can save from switching from a 3.5 gallon toilet, to a 1.6 gallon toilet.
