Plant-Based Meat

EN | Lawson Hunter | EarthMatters

Growing crops to feed farm animals is vastly inefficient, driving up the price of grains and legumes, and entrenching global poverty. The challenge to produce enough food for 9 billion people by 2050, requires a more efficient system and less food waste.

A Vision for a Circular Economy for Plastics
31 Mar, 2019 | 0:30:00 |
EN | Lawson Hunter | EarthMatters

The use of plastics today is a highly wasteful, linear, take-make-waste model that is harmful to the environment and misses economic opportunities as value is literally thrown away. This linear economy for plastics requires energy and generates emissions for each production cycle that would largely be avoided, were plastic otherwise reused or effectively recycled. In a report to the Smart...

Because of a complex system of interlinked...
