Moving Towards Sustainability Shirt!

Moving Towards Sustainability Shirt!

Imagine this design assignment: Design something that makes oxygen, sequesters carbon, fixes nitrogen, distills water, uses other energy as food, makes complex sugars and food, creates microclimates, changes colors with the seasons and self replicates. Now let’s just knock those down and write on them!

Ha this is just awesome.

Sky Vegetables is a new firm started by University of Wisconsin students that builds sustainable hydroponic  produce gardens on the rooftops of supermarkets and local grocery stores. These little sustainable farms use solar and wind power to sustain it’s energy and collect natural rainwater to be purified and recycled into the produce. I love this idea and would be so happy to see these all over. It’s inspiring to see people in my age group doing things that are so revolutionary. This business is supposedly really taking off! I found a few other articles about Sky Vegetables elsewhere on the web. Just run a google search for “Sky Vegetables.” Click on the picture to check out one of the articles I found.

This an awesome collection of different style wind turbines. It gives you a feel for the creative ideas that we will need to come up with to make a more sustainable future. Many of these wind turbine designs are highly efficient and are diving in price. With this many great design breakthroughs, I cannot see how these wouldn’t make it into the mainstream. I want one for my house! Hopefully these more efficient wind harvesters will be more well known in the near future! Check it!
