A little good news — for Astro-geologists?

A little good news — about Beemunity?

I get this from … Continue reading A little good news — about Beemunity?

http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/berkeley-scientists-single-use-plastic-eats-itself/ I don't know about you, but the perils of plastics have been a topic of prominence for me for a long time now: recycling, choosing less packaging, reusing... What to do with all that plastic?!? A few years ago I read about someone working on bacteria that would eat plastics in landfills, but it … Continue reading A little good news — there’s hope for us yet!
