5 Industries that Threaten the Globe and How We are Going to Save It

5 Industries that Threaten the Globe and How We are Going to Save It

As our knowledge of how to clean up and prevent pollution increases and scientists slowly discover why we get certain illnesses and diseases, the world becomes more conscious of creating ways to make work environments safer; not only for the laborers, but for the entire human race. The goal is not necessarily to shut the processes down, but to reroute the toxic chemicals emitted in order to capture their vapors from releasing into the ozone. It's a new generation of wind, tidal and solar energy generators providing the world with its power. Continents are rapidly expanding their renewable energy resources, budgets and plans in order to eliminate dependency on these medieval practices that shortens the future of a healthy humanity.

Putting your water to the test: Determining the quality of both bottled and filtered water

Putting your water to the test: Determining the quality of both bottled and filtered water

The problem with determining the quality of the water you consume is that it often looks, smells and tastes perfectly fine. Because your senses may be deficient in properly evaluating the purity of water, it’s important to evaluate its quality in other ways. Following are some important points to consider, when evaluating water quality. Where does your bottled water come […]
Clean water initiatives in impoverished areas

Clean water initiatives in impoverished areas

Clean water is a resource often taken for granted in the United States. We have the ability to get a cool glass of water from our refrigerator water filter, but we tend to forget that many people in developing countries continue to live without access to clean water every day. Millions of people have no choice but to drink water contaminated […]
