The need for fresh water has pushed humans into exploring new and innovative techniques. For thousands of years, in regions where water is scarce, sometimes using air wells, people have harvested water from the rain, fog or even dew. In Ethiopia, we can witness an upgrade to the age-old technique. With a slick modern design, the WarkaWater will definitely improve collection of water from the surrounding environment. Standing 30 ft. tall and 13 ft. wide, the bamboo tower was envisioned by Arturo Vittori and his team, Architecture and Vision. How does it work? Well, the mesh netting installed on the structure captures moisture from the air and directs it into hygienic holding tank. Then, you can access the water via a spout. Check out the blueprints and other images involving this modern technique of collecting water!
When you think of Detroit, ‘sustainable‘ and ‘agriculture‘ may not be the first two words that you think of. But a new urban agrihood debuted by The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI) might change your mind.

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.
After decades of earnest public-information campaigns, Americans are finally recycling. Airports, malls, schools, and office buildings across the country have bins for plastic bottles and aluminum cans and newspapers. In some cities, you can be fined if inspectors discover that you haven’t recycled appropriately.
