CityTree is a Breath of Fresh IoT Air

by: Startacus Admin ~ 18th April 2017
Can you tell the difference between an Ash tree and an Oak? A Birch and an Aspen? Perhaps, or perhaps not; however, the thing everyone knows about trees is that they absorb CO2 and produce oxygen which, among other things, makes them vital to life on Earth. Life in an urban environment, however, does not feature trees particularly heavily - there’s not much wood in a concrete jungle. So how ...

Edible water bottle Ooho receives a flood of crowdfunding support

by: Startacus Admin ~ 18th April 2017
Water. It’s wet, runny, and vital to life. It’s also notoriously difficult to make portable without environmentally-unfriendly packaging. There are plenty of reasons to dislike plastic bottles: In the US (because the numbers are more dramatic!), people go through roughly 1500 bottles per second; 80% of these, which is around $1,000,000,000 worth of plastic, end up in landfills to sit f...

Take the Climate Week Challenge

by: Startacus Admin ~ 1st March 2014
As a nation, we are somewhat obsessed with the weather…and who could blame us? Few other places in the world have the potential to experience such dramatic variations, whether we are buried in snow or baking in the summer sun, our favorite small-talk staple is never far from our lips.

As the old adage goes (and as many a veteran news reporter will gladly tell you) never work with children or animals. But apparently the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) either didn't get the memo, or have elected to take a rather more optimistic standpoint by working with both of them together!

Glove Love
