Today is the day when we all need some hopeful and useful news. So let’s take a look at some ingenious and determined individuals who have managed to bring much hope for a cleaner and healthier future for all of us residing on planet earth, below:
At the McKay Bay Nature Preserve in Tampa, Florida, USA, a storm drain outflow carries a steady flow of garbage from the streets of Ybor City and it’s headed for McKay Bay. But before it gets there, it’s captured by the Water Goat, in video published on Aug 16, 2017, “‘Water Goat’ system keeps trash from bay“, below:
Seabin is a floating rubbish bin that collects garbage from the sea. It’s designed to be near ports, marinas, and yacht clubs, in the video published on April 25, 2017, “Europe’s now trialling these floating rubbish cans that collect garbage from the sea“, below:
OCEAN VOYAGES INSTITUTE SETS RECORD WITH LARGEST OPEN OCEAN CLEAN-UP IN HISTORY Ocean Voyages Institute sets a new record after a 48 day expedition with the largest at sea clean-up to date, successfully removing 103 tons (206,000 lbs.) of fishing nets and consumer plastics from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, in the video published on June 25, 2020, “LARGEST OPEN OCEAN CLEAN-UP IN HISTORY“, below:
On May 11th 2017, Boyan Slat, Founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup, the Dutch foundation developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic, announced a design breakthrough allowing for the cleanup of half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years, in the video published on May 14, 2017, “How we will rid the oceans of plastic – Boyan Slat | LIVE | The Ocean Cleanup“, below:
1. This bin collects garbage from the sea. Seabin has a pump that creates a flow of water. The garbage is caught in a bag, allowing water to flow out back to sea. 2. This machine crushes beer bottles into usable sand. 200 grams of powder form each bottle is recycled to preserve beaches. 3. SaltWater Brewery created edible packaging to save sea life. The six-pack rings are made of barley and wheat. Sea life can eat the rings safely. 4. AIR-INK can turn air pollution into ink. it collects carbon soot from a car’s exhaust. Then it is processed into a high-quality black ink. 5. These edible water blobs are biodegradable. The capsule is made from a seaweed extract. A greener solution to creating waste-free packaging. 6. This “Ocean Cleanup” machine has a giant floating pipe to capture plastic. The pipe moves with the waves and has floating anchors. The plastic is a; gathered in the center for a boat to remove. 7. Avani’s biodegradable bags are saving sea life and reducing ocean pollution. They are made from cassava root and natural starches. Making them harmless for animal consumption. 8. This machine recycles tires. They are turned into rubber crumb for artificial grass. 9. Aquaponics combines fish farming and hydroponics. As the fish eat and grow they produce waste. The wastewater is given to plants as a fertilizer. The plants absorb the nutrients in the water and they are returned to the fish tanks. A natural process to growing food. 10. HomeBiogas 2.0 turns food scraps into cooking gas. The gas flows from the system directly to the kitchen stove. It can be fed up to six liters of waste and digest almost anything. HomeBiogas can also create fertilizer that goes back into soil, in the video published on Jan 11, 2018, “These 10 Inventions Are Saving The Earth“, below:
Every 2 hours, we throw away enough trash to fill up the largest container ship in the world. Thankfully, people are now setting all kinds of eco-friendly trends, and companies are coming up with green technologies that let consumers live a low-waste yet equally comfortable lifestyle. Here are some of the best examples! In the video published on March 23, 2019, “22 Amazing Inventions That Will Save Our Planet“, below:
10 eco-friendly inventions that could save us from the end of the world we are going to take a closer look at some of the most incredible technological innovations that are changing the course of history and driving humanity towards an outstanding future in harmony with the planet!!! 10. Eco-friendly construction with Mycotech 9. Manure-based, eco-friendly paper 8. The “wind tree” system 7. Pave-Gen technology 6. Graviky Labs’ exhaust filters 5. Solid rain 4. water balls 3. Water Gen 2. Absorbent asphalt 1.Carbon nanotubes by Blueren, in the video published on Aug 29, 2019, “10 Eco-friendly Inventions That Could Save Us From The End Of The World“, below:
