We live in a material environment, in that we rely on materials to make our lives easier. Without even realizing it, humans consume massive quantities of metals and minerals with every convenient food package, amazing home, and technical advancement.

The United States Geological Service (USGS) publishes annual summaries of resources for more than 90 individual minerals and materials that summarize global mining statistics. Today's infographic visualizes the data showing dramatic scale of the 2019 non-fuel mineral production.

A wide range of minerals, including precious metals, base metals, industrial minerals, and building materials, can be categorized as "non-fuel." Minerals other than carbon, such as oil, natural gas, and coal, are not used for cooking. If non-fuel minerals are used up, then there is no alternative. But others can be recycled continuously.
