ELEPHANT SANCTUARY IN CAMBODIA


In an effort to save the last elephants of Cambodia, an elephant preserve is run by Sangdeaun Lek Chailert, (shown in the video trailer), where these wonderful creatures can finally live a natural life, free from abuse and suffering. Ashley Bell has made a wonderful documentary about this called "Love and Bananas."

JAPANESE TRAIN BARKS TO SCARE OFF DEER

A fabulous new innovation from our Japanese friends! In an attempt to prevent collisions with deer, designs are being made for Japanese trains first to snort like deer, to get their attention, and then to bark like a dog to frighten them away! If this project succeeds, there will be areas along the tracks where deer tend to gather--but away from human habitation--where the sound of barking dogs will be constantly played. Hats off to you, Japan!

AIR CONDITIONING USING OLD PLASTIC BOTTLES!

A man named Grey Dhaka has come up with an ingenious way to help cool buildings about 10 degrees in places without air conditioners or electricity! Blow air through your open mouth onto your hand. Now purse your lips, and blow onto your hand. Notice how much cooler the air is when your lips are pursed. Using plastic bottles, Dhaka created an inexpensive air cooler made of old plastic bottles for people in hot climates!

PLASTIC WASTE USED IN ROADS

This is happening in India and has now spread to the UK, as shown in the video below. Until we learn how to reduce our manufacture and use of plastic, this is a great option. Let's hope we see it in the USA soon!

NEW HOPE FOR CORAL REEFS

We have lost a huge percentage of our world's coral reefs in the last decades. Coral reefs put forth more oxygen into the atmosphere than plants, and are both vital and beautiful.

David Vaughn has discovered new ways of growing coral much more quickly than before, and says he will not retire until he has planted a million new corals. This is wonderful news!

AN ECO-SOLUTION THAT EATS UP 150X MORE CARBON THAN A TREE!


This video is three years old. Apparently, the micro-algae lamp is now being used for some street lighting in certain spots in Paris. We hope this catches on: who can beat gorgeous glowing light that eats up carbon in our atmosphere...from humble algae!

NEW ENERGY SOURCE?

While in the United States we are caught up in politics and the transition of power--rightly so--something else has popped up in the news that may have enormous implications for the future! It's called a Sun Cell. Here's hoping... And many thanks to Brilliant Light Power for their hard work in researching and developing what the world so desperately needs. These are the true but often overlooked heroes of our time.

A NEW REVOLUTION IN WHEELCHAIRS

A new wheelchair developed by Israeli company UpNRide will soon be available that allows people to stand as well as to sit, and to shift those positions easily! This is not only excellent for muscle tone; people tend to look down on those in wheelchairs, to treat them in a patronizing way, or to overlook them entirely. Being at eye level with others will offer greater dignity for those who are mobility restricted.

TEENAGER DISCOVERS FORGOTTEN MAYAN CITY


William Gadoury of Quebec, Canada, is the latest of many teenaged wonders. He had always been interested in the Mayans, and over time surmised that their cities were built to correlate with the stars. By studying star charts, he located a previously undiscovered ancient Mayan city. Cudos to William!

The new anti-science climate in the USA is frightening. Please don't stop believing in science, or in our kids!

WILL BIODEGRADABLE PACKAGING REPLACE PLASTIC? HOPE SO!

While there are some seriously egregious things happening in the dairy industry, this packaging seems like a good replacement for non-biodegradable plastics which get used only one time and then wind up in a landfill:

ZION HARVEY'S HAND TRANSPLANT

This wonderful little boy, who is now nine years old, lost his hands and feet to an infection at the age of two. His organs were beginning to shut down, and when he was four, he received a kidney transplant from his mother. A few years later, he was the first child to receive a double hand transplant. He is a wise and loving little boy who reveals that his grandmother taught him with that with hard work and hope, one can achieve almost anything. You will enjoy watching this short video from NBC, and a YouTube search will bring up many more videos with details about his story!

WAR IS ACTUALLY DECLINING ON OUR PLANET

While we primarily post videos on this site, this is a link to a beautiful article about the decline of war. The gist of it is that despite the terrorism, despite the brutalities, despite the wars, we are now experiencing more peace on the planet than ever before.

EDIBLE SIX-PACK RINGS

This Florida craft-beer brewery has created something we hope will catch on! They replaced plastic six-pack rings that are so destructive to marine life with edible six-pack rings that fish (or humans!) can nibble on! Cudos to the Saltwater Brewery!  Coca cola? Budweiser? Are you paying attention?!?

Here is a wonderful alternative to those plastic forks and spoons, usually used only once, that clog up landfills and will remain intact for thousands of years: EDIBLE CUTLERY! We hope this innovation catches on and eventually replaces the ubiquitous and environmentally dreadful plastic utensils.
