Hello Greenzoners! Some of you know, and some of you probably don’t know (nothing to be ashamed of, don’t worry 😉 ), one of the main causes of air pollution is burning wood and coal in cookstoves in the process of preparing food.

cookstove
Many people use more modern technologies like gas or electric cookers, but everyone can afford them or are available to anyone.
There were designs of special, “clean” cookstoves, trying to reduce the amount of pollution, but they had no effect, unfortunately.

Recently however, a group of students discovered an interesting way to vastly reduce the amount of pollution in our households. (more…)

Unusual shape of a shell, isn’t it? That’s why the animal you see here is named Peanut – and no, it’s not a name of a species. The shell disfigurement is the cause of littering the oceans – when turtle was still very young, he got wrapped by plastic 6-pack packaging.

Some time ago popular for the great role it had in World War II – now it’s a calm piece of land with animals that live peacefully.

December 13th, 2012

Hello Greenzoners.

Linfen

China is well known for being one of the most polluted countries in the world. Vice, to whose videos we recommended several times, went to the most polluted city and to talk about it in detail. Very interesting documentary!

According to the new studies by the USGS, streams are more vulnerable to urban development than it was previously thought. Growing and spreading inhabited areas lead to the indirect contamination of nearby streams. As scientists claim, “streams are not only water – they are communities of aquatic life”. And, because of pollution, important and sensitive aquatic species living in the streams die out.

What do you think about it, dear Greenzoners?

Hello Greenzoners, we’d like to share with you with another Eco News, this one’s concerning really interesting and important issue – Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch.

garbage patch

What is this? It’s an accumulation of garbage, floating on the northern Pacific Ocean. It stretches to hundreds of miles and, if all this garbage would be gathered in one place, it would cover the surface almost as big as France.
It’s made of plastic, which is not biodegradable, so it flows forever. The garbage comes most of the times from beach (left unattended and then swept by waves), fishing boats and cargo ships.

Not only does it pollute the water, but also is dangerous to the underwater animals. Many sea species were found dead entangled in old fishing nets or poisoned by accidental swallowing plastic or steel leftovers. (more…)
