Ever heard of piezoelectricity? Don’t worry, neither has the majority of society.  Soon however, it might be making green news all over the place.  This so-called “charge that gathers in solid materials in response to strain” (like crystal and ceramic) has attracted the attention of the science and the business world alike. And this isn’t any sort of ‘negative’ strain per se; the strain refers to pressure that initiates a charge inside certain materials- like the pressure from walking on a sidewalk, for example. Or…dancing. Read more…

From the amount of food wasted daily to the amount of un-environmentally friendly details in the design, the restaurant industry is not the most eco-conscious of all industries.  While we have seen a trend of incorporating local and organic produce (certainly worth noting), the physical restaurant itself isn’t so “green”, nor is the amount of food tossed-organic or not.  However, Arthur Potts Dawson set out to change the restaurant industries approach to sustainability and is making strides in changing the restaurant world as we know it- from the design to the dining experience itself.

Walking up walls like a gecko?  Swimming like a shark?  Collecting water like a beetle?

It’s 7:35 AM, Tuesday morning, and my Kesha ring-tone alarm clock encourages me to wake up “feelin’ like P. Diddy.” Just the start I need to get a good surf in before work.

But wait, the beach is closed. Again. Read more…

Recently, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) has become the standard for buildings to get a “green” certification.  The certification, sponsored by the US Green Building Council, is handed out based on quality of materials, waste disposal, and energy efficiency.  However, a recent study has shown that the certification often overlooks a very important category, human health.

Its been said that enough solar energy hits the earth every hour to power the world for years.  Now imagine if every building could take advantage of solar energy without the cost of installing solar panels?  For years, researchers have been trying to find a way of capturing solar energy without the expensive installation of solar panels.  Recently, a team of scientists developed a transparent spray-on application that turns any surface facing the sun into electricity-producing space.

If you are currently enjoying some summertime heat, a great way to spend the afternoon is by lazing around or in the good old swimming pool.  Even without the summer weather, taking a dip or swimming laps is an enjoyable past time.  However, chlorine has negative side affects on a person’s health, mainly affecting the respiratory system by causing increased rates in asthma and wheezing (and it turns some peoples’ hair green!).  Luckily, an eco-friendly, European solution has been recently gaining some popularity in the United States.   Read more…


Desertification

It is estimated that we will lose 1/3 of hearable land by the end of the century, mostly due to desertification. However, the problem is happening way too slow to reach the headlines in our fast-paced media society. Desertification threatens the livelihood of millions as the dunes of the Sahara move south at about 600 meters a year. Read more…
