Gavin Munro doesn’t just grow trees, he grows furniture. Making one piece of furniture can take decades using traditional methods, if you consider the time it takes to grow the tree. What if you could incorporate the growing of the tree into the process? By growing the tree into the shape you want, you avoid the energy-wasting consumption of fuel for chainsaws and other logging equipment, not to mention all of the tools you don’t need to produce the furniture. This is just what furniture designer Gavin Munro has in mind.

The Apple logo might have gone from rainbow to black over the years, but the company is getting greener every day. This week, Apple made two announcements that impressed environmentalists around the world. In the first, the iPhone maker shared the news that it has purchased 36,000 acres of forest land for the express purpose of protecting it from future development. The other announcement was about two new solar farm projects which are already under construction in China, duplicating clean energy efforts the company has already made here in the U.S.

In Maryland, Tesla's competition could help them get back in business

Tesla’s been fighting for the right to do business in a number of states recently, but the electric car maker has gained some footing in Maryland, thanks to an unusual ally. The Maryland Automobile Dealers Association, which is essentially a collection of Tesla’s competitors in the state, has supported a measure to allow Tesla to continue their direct sales model without relying on a third-party dealership. Like many states, Maryland has laws that bar car makers from selling directly to the public, and those laws help dealerships take a slice out of the auto-buying business. In states where Tesla has won the ability to continue their sales, new legislation has been enacted to create an exception for electric car makers like Tesla, typically with a few caveats. In Maryland, a similar bill has already passed the state’s house and senate, and Governor Larry Hogan could sign it into law as soon as April 28. Having the backing of the largest dealership association in the state won’t hurt Tesla’s odds of getting their cars on the road in Maryland.
