INTERVIEW: Boyan Slat, Teenage Inventor of the Ocean Cleanup Array

Last year, 19-year-old inventor Boyan Slat made waves by designing an “Ocean Cleanup Array” which he claimed could remove 72.5 million tons of plastic from the world’s oceans. Although his idea received criticism from some quarters, a year-long feasibility study concluded that the idea will work. Not just that—it could potentially remove half the plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch within a decade. The last 12 months have been a whirlwind for the young inventor; he’s given talks around the world and conducted tests in The Azores. We sat down with Boyan Slat to ask him about his inspiration, dealing with criticism and what the future holds for the Ocean Cleanup Array.

In an effort to foster the adoption of more electric vehicles, China has announced that all electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles will be exempt from the purchase tax until 2017. Currently China’s car buyers have been slow to adopt electric and hybrid vehicles because of the higher prices and charging infrastructure, but the Chinese government hopes that the new tax cut will make them more attractive.

Yesterday, 300,000 square miles of ocean along the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts was set aside as critical habitat in the largest designation ever in U.S. history. The ruling seeks to protect the nesting and roaming habitat of loggerhead sea turtles, which were declared endangered in 1978 and continue to struggle against threats from climate change, fishing nets and ocean pollution.

Say Goodbye to Disposable Chopsticks Forever with Penstix

by , 07/10/14

Did you know that over 80 BILLION pairs of disposable chopsticks were thrown out worldwide last year? It might seem inconsequential to toss out that used pair of bamboo or wooden sticks after you’ve finished hoovering your take-out sushi, but if you think about how many other people are doing the same thing, every day, several times a day, around the globe… the numbers are staggering. In this modern era of eco-awareness, most people are aiming to reduce their garbage waste as much as possible, and litterless lunch options are among the best ways to do that. Penstix is a pair of eco-friendly chopsticks that tucks neatly into a pen, can be cleaned easily, and if cared for properly, can last a lifetime.

This net-zero home designed for two Boulder, CO environmental attorneys by HMH Architecture & Interiors is built with sustainable materials throughout. The window design optimizes the amount of sunlight that comes in to keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter, while a 10kW rooftop solar array and hot water solar system produces 140 percent of the home’s energy every year. The excess power is sold back to Xcel Energy, which will eventually help pay off the initial investment. A beautiful showcase of cutting edge solar technology and green materials, the home is warm and livable – an essential component of this impressive design.
