The Green Technology Wave
It’s no secret that more and more people are trying to “go green”, and green technology is there to help every step of the way. The ultimate idea is to create materials that can be totally reused or recycled again and again. Instead of the “Cradle to Grave” mentality, the folks who produce green technology want a “Cradle to Cradle” mentality. That would mean nothing would be wasted and everything could be reused. Their purpose is also to reduce pollution as much as possible, making the world a simply safer place to live.
Green technology priorities are things like energy and fuel sources, environmentally friendly packing sources, and also less toxic chemicals. The goal is to rely less on our natural resources and create alternatives that are in turn environmentally friendly as well as being recyclable and reusable.
The burden is too great on the limited natural resources that we have and there will come a time all too soon that they will be gone unless technology focusing on green improvements can continue to move forward and create products and materials to save those resources. Solar panels and orange cleaner are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to green living and technologies.
