Eco-friendly Inventions

The UK company, Skipping Rocks Lab, based in London, has developed a packaging alternative for drinking water and other beverages that eliminates the need for plastics. The process encapsulates drinking water in a flexible membrane or blob made of brown seaweed that is completely biodegradable, edible, and vegan. Besides eco-friendly inventions that reduce waste on land, brilliant inventions have been created to remove trash from bodies of water. Mr. Trash Wheel is a trash interceptor invented by Mr. John Kellett in 2008 that removes trash from the Jones Falls River at Inner Harbor in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The waste collected is recycled or goes to waste-to-energy facilities.

Everyone knows that if we don’t do something about this, plastic will suffocate our oceans, will cause ever-worse health problems for human beings.We need to do something about this. We cannot keep giving poison to the Earth because it will stay in the soil forever and keep building up generation after generation. We should do what we can to minimize harm to the environment because that’s our duty. We should do that, we should be kind.

Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

Conservation agriculture is a new method of farming with a wide range of environmental benefits. That, if on a large-area basis, all the farmers convert to conservation agriculture, that means that we have agriculture which is not a net emitter of greenhouse gases, but it becomes a mitigator of global warming. And also, farmers find that instead of polluting the atmosphere with carbon dioxide, it gets locked into the soil, it improves their soil health and soil productivity. And that means that the whole soil function changes. And in the long term, we have to change our education system. And also, the institutions, research and extension systems which are there to help the farmers must begin to align themselves behind this new paradigm.

Conservation Agriculture - Growing into a Brighter Future: Interview with Dr. Amir Kassam, Part 1 of 2 (INT)

No soil erosion should be taking place. And now we can achieve that with conservation agriculture, the new paradigm of agriculture about which farmers are beginning to learn and are adopting more and more, which is a no-till agriculture. It is farming which basically emulates as closely as possible what happens in the natural world, how nature takes care of the land. In nature there is no plowing. In nature soil health is being looked after through biomass, a return of biomass. And also, the third aspect of conservation agriculture is diversification.

Living Sustainably Off the Grid

Living off the grid is an evolving lifestyle that reduces an individual’s environmental impact and saves money by eliminating utility bills. It also offers a sense of mental and physical independence and the satisfaction that one’s own efforts are benefiting the environment. Now let’s look at some examples of off-the-grid living. In the 1970s US architect Mr. Michael Reynolds designed an off-the-grid house called Earthship. Since then, Earthship has become well-known and is being built around the globe.
