Green Technology – 3 Advancements That Could Change Everything

The internet took the world by storm and scientists are predicting the same fate for green technology. People are becoming more educated on the effects their actions have on our planet and are looking for ways to protect it. Reducing carbon emissions and wastes are at the top of the list and the following three innovations are sure to be game changers.

  1. Green Concrete. Traditional concrete is made of carbon-emitting limestone, whereas green concrete is made of non-carbonate magnesium oxides. It absorbs the carbon dioxide and as a bonus, it’s recyclable.
  2. Bamboo Laptops. Electronics contribute quite a bit of toxic waste to the planet in the form of e-waste. Bamboo laptops can be the solution to slowing this pile up. Made of biodegradable bamboo, which is also the fastest growing plant in the world, these laptops certainly don’t lack in performance either.
  3. Underwater Kites. Just as its title implies, underwater kites are literally kites affixed to the ocean floor that can generate tidal energy from turbines attached to them. They harness the power of the tides underwater.

We’re on the verge of a green phenomenon. Hold on to your seats, it’s going to be a whirlwind of innovations.
