In the past, people readily used materials with unknown properties. Sure, they used some durability tests for different materials, but these usually ended with approximate results. Unfortunately, a lot of times this ended in disaster. Furthermore, some materials, although durable and easy to mold, tend to become toxic over the course of the years. In the past, however, this was something that science had no way of determining due to a lack of adequate tools for the job. Finally, there are also hidden properties of materials, such as different behavior under certain climate conditions or external pressure.
Is there a source of energy so perfect and pure that can be used on a daily basis without limitations, pollution, and global warming emissions? Our sun is, without a doubt, the oldest source of energy on Earth. Since ancient times, people have found ways to harness its vast energy potential. Over the years, solar energy systems have moved towards a truly sustainable energy source that, apart from being economic, has many environmental benefits.

Vegan leather exists. You may ask yourself how? Or what makes it real? It might be hard to believe and sound ridiculous, yet it’s true – at least, partially. Vegan leather isn’t actually leather at all, it only resembles leather. So much so it can pass off as nearly identical to other leather products, such as leather pants, jackets, or other leather products.

Yet what if there was another way? A way we could still enjoy the flavors and textures of meat without having to actually kill any animals or harm the environment? Sounds too good to be true.
Yet that is exactly the mission folks behind the company SuperMeat and Beyond Meat hope to achieve.
Organic eating is the best option for our health and well-being, especially in this fast polluting environment. We are well aware of this fact.

Even with powerful public health messages about the effects of smoking, both in the developed world and in poorer regions, demand for smoking remains incredibly strong. The health arguments against smoking are well-known and much repeated, but smoking also has some major environmental implications, which are often overlooked. In this article, we examine some of those implications, including land use, paper production, rubbish problems and air pollution.
