I was a hardcore Dr. Pepper girl for years. Then I gave up regular soda because of the high sugar content and switched to diet soda. Next we were warned to avoid the chemicals in diet soda; and more recently studies have indicated that diet soda actually causes rather than prevents weight gain (source). Geez. Lots of us moved on to bottled water, but that has landfill and environmental consequences and can be less healthy than regular tap water (source). Juice has more nutrition than soda, but is comparable in sugar, carb, and calorie content (source). Dang. It’s hard to keep up.

Have you ever considered the environmental costs of a t-shirt throughout its life? It’s astounding, really, to see the amount of cotton, water, and pesticides that go into making these t-shirts. We won’t even go into the additional energy and water we use when washing our shirts throughout their lifetimes. And then what happens when our shirts get a little holey? We throw them away!
It’s time to put a stop to that. There are a lot of ways we can help to lessen the damage we are doing to the planet. During the lifetime of your shirt, consider line drying instead of machine drying – it is cheaper, lowers your energy bill, and extends the life of your shirts! And once you’re through with the shirt, consider donating it. And better yet, flex your creative muscles and upcycle those old t-shirts!
We found 15 wonderfully creative ways people have upcycled their own shirts. Check them out below!

“Transhumanism is all about the creative and ethical use of technology to better the human condition. Futurists, when discussing topics related to transhumanism, tend to look at nano-tech, bio-mechanical augmentation and related technology that, for the most part, is beyond the comprehension of lay-people.
If Transhumanism as a movement is to succeed, we have to explain it’s goals and benefits to humanity by addressing the common-man. After all, transhumanism is not the exclusive domain, nor restricted to the literati, academia or the rich. The more the common man realizes that (s)he is indeed already transhuman in a way — the lesser the taboo associated with the movement and the faster the law of accelerating returns will kick in, leading to eventual Tech Singularity.” - Read on

The age of green is upon us. We have reached a point in our human evolution where science, math, and creative genius have discovered a way to suspend a living forest in mid air. The answer to city pollution is now Stefano Boeri’s Bosco Verticale, the world’s first 27-story microclimate apartment towers currently under construction in Milan, Italy. Built to function as city air purifiers, these lush apartments will include over 900 trees, 5,000 bushes, and 11,000 plants throughout the tower balconies. Each perch of life will aid in reducing city noise, moderating atmospheric temperatures, absorbing CO2 emissions, and acting as an energy sustainer for seasonal weather shifts.
