Environment and science are always together, but not always in harmony. Scientists and researchers finally have begun to direct their efforts to both innovation and for being respectful of the environment and if possible, help to diminish climate change effects. After many years of killing our, It’s about time to start doing something, we need it for our planet, life, and health.
Here you have some examples of environment conscience work:
Creating electric and solar cars for clean air
It is well known that large companies bet on ‘ green ‘ innovations and sustainability. Volvo has already promised that by 2019 they will be making a huge amount of electric cars, and with this in mind, we hope that will provoke a domino effect with other leading brands which will want to start helping our planet environment.
However, There are many challenges, researchers are already examining how these vehicles will work and their impact. During the winter in the coldest areas, the car can travel 800 kilometers on a single charge, but with the sun is shining, has no limits. People can charge batteries at charging points or at home. According to the signature, the first 100 units will be available on 2020.
Oysters and Toilets: What? How does this help our planet environment?
Yes, There are a lot of people willing to help our planet, these are people worried about our health and well being for future generations, and that means a lot, the New York Department of Environmental Protection, is starting to grow oyster farms in New York City, using porcelain recovered from more than 5,000 toilets, as a nursery garden.
This oyster shell recycling program involves 29 restaurants, which store the wastes, then they return the oyster shells collected to the ocean. Under this program volunteers have diverted more than 2.8 million oyster shells, The people pace them where they are able to contribute to the quality of water and ocean bottoms, in areas that have been destroyed by natural disasters.

Rodes that generate electricity – No pollution and better clean air for our health
The new technologies allow pavements to be installed, which use the kinetic energy of steps, to transform it into electricity, so they supply the residential and commercial areas nearby.
This type of surface is already working in some places like Washington, Heathrow Airport and in several areas of London and users love them. You generate this energy when walking, in other words, the perfect renewable source of electricity.
The most innovative thing is that users by using Bluetooth are able to interact with the pavement through a series of applications, converting their steps into discounts and vouchers for attractions and shops nearby.
There are many things that we can do to make sure that we will have a clean environment in the long run. We have to start promoting these alternatives and help the environment!!!
