It considers the state of the atmosphere, water, soil, and other characteristics in a particular territory. It also examines how the enterprise affects the ecology of nearby settlements.

Eight Ways the Blockchain Can Influence Our Environment
Eight Ways the Blockchain Can Influence Our Environment

Blockchain first shook the world in 2017, when all media was bursting with announcements of the new mainstream technology hitting the market. Then, public interest slowly switched to the question of regulation. However, these issues were soon resolved, and blockchain technology was widely accepted by the world community. In fact, a recent survey revealed that more than 80% of participating executives have already developed blockchain-based initiatives at work, with the majority of those surveyed being employed in the financial sector.

As a new technology, blockchain has much more to offer the global community than just facilitating financial services. …


🍎Organic Waste
🍎Organic Waste

Organic waste is another common problem many countries in the world are struggling to solve. According to the World Bank, global organic waste will reach one billion tons by 2025. This waste will make up around 46% of the total waste produced. The global cost of disposing of organic waste was $94 billion in 2010 and is projected to increase to $172 billion by 2025.

Landfills are not the best disposal option for this type of waste, especially because food waste is broken down into methane, which is a greenhouse gas (GHG) known to be 23 times stronger than carbon…


The carbon footprint of one e-reader is estimated to be approximately 168 kg. That’s a lot! Toxic materials (zinc, for example) are used to produce e-readers, and such devices need to be properly disposed of and processed so that they do not create e-waste, which is already a problem. E-readers also need to be charged, and home electricity, for the most part, comes from coal-fired power plants, which are one of the dominant sources of greenhouse gases.

One paper book creates 1–7 kg of СО2, and if the paper comes from a responsible, certified resource (that is, the producer cuts…


Introduction

The outbreak of the coronavirus is showing how vulnerable our current supply chain systems are. The way trading partners do business today is a lot to wrap our heads around. The pressing challenges are obvious: an enormous amount of manual processes are paired with traditional paper-based workflows. It’s high time we applied the blockchain (a type of distributed ledger technology) to supply chain management (SCM). Hence, we thought it would be interesting to lay out a balanced overview of the advantages of blockchain-driven solutions.

Let’s make sure we are on the same page first. The supply chain is nothing more…


You cannot cover the topic of alternatives to plastic shampoo, cream, or body scrub bottles in a few lines. But here is a small list of environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic containers:

1. Store solid shampoo in a metal container.

2. Replace tubed toothpaste with powdered toothpaste. You can store powdered toothpaste in a small glass candle holder (after carefully removing the wax remnants).

3. Replace plastic toothbrushes with bamboo ones. Dentists have repeatedly said that bamboo brushes are useful for gums and teeth in general.

4. Replace plastic hairbrushes with wooden ones. They have a favorable effect on blood…

1. The Endless Printer

Printing has come a long way since the desktop computer. First, there were looped printers, then matrix printers, and then inkjet and laser printers. However, all such printers have a drawback: consumables are required for them to work.

The Japanese company Sanwa Newtec has emerged from this difficult situation. Its product is a rewritable printer called PrePeat. It does not use ink and works on plastic paper. Each sheet of…
