The Pigs, Planes and Urine Infographic is Shocking Yet Fascinating

Don’t let the name fool you; the Pigs Planes and Urine infographic is not about pigs, planes, or urine -- well, it kind of is. What the infographic actually explores is the travel industry, and it is provided courtesy of TravelMatch.

Some of the truly fascinating facts that are featured in the Pigs Planes and Urine infographic include: children on holiday build 59 million cubic metres of sandcastles, which is enough to fill 57 Empire State Buildings, 17% of Americans admit to peeing in pools, which is enough to fill 19 Olympic swimming pools of urine and hotel bacon is the result of 7 million pigs per year, which averages out to approximately one pig being slaughtered every five seconds.

The Pigs Planes and Urine infographic offers readers some unique information about the travel industry that no one would have otherwise thought about. I kind of wish I never knew about the killed pigs or pools full of urine, but I digress.
