Every 2 hours, we throw away enough trash to fill up the largest container ship in the world. And though more and more people are starting to think “green” today, we still need to find new solutions to the pollution problem. Luckily, our imaginations have no limits and modern technology can also help us bring new ideas to life.
8. A newspaper that can be planted
Although we tend to use digital sources of information more often than traditional ones these days, there’s still tons of paper that go to waste every single day. To solve this problem, a Japanese designer named Yoshinaka Ono invented a special 100% biodegradable “green” paper that contains plant seeds. The concept was adopted by The Mainichi Newspaper.
In order to stay “green,” you’ll need to bury the paper and pour some water on it. It will eventually turn into a beautiful shrubbery with time.
