This year, Earth Day will be celebrated by more people around the globe because of technology. At Why Science we are celebrating Earth Week, April 22 – 26, by exploring issues pertaining to the unintended consequences of technology on the environment by publishing a series of articles on the potential and drawbacks of plastics. The future does look bright. With nature’s help, we will develop technologies to eliminate landfill waste.
In the meantime, we invite you to explore these resources below which we have enjoyed as part of our Earth Week celebrations.
1. Read “We All Are Implicated“, by Award Winning Essayist, Novelist, and Poet Wendell Berry Laments a Disconnection from Community and the Land (Chronicle of Higher Education)
2. Watch to learn what actually happens to materials you recycle by watching this American Chemical Society video “Beyond the blue bins: The journey of recyclable materials“.
