Saw the video below when it was posted by a cousin on Facebook.  It showcases a “Green Pizza Box” made of recycled cardboard that converts into plates for eating and a smaller storage container for leftovers.

 

People grumble all the time that environmental regulations kill jobs.  Yes, some energy inefficient jobs will be lost.  But “green” jobs will be also created by innovations like the one above that will be spurred by the need to preserve the environment and conserve natural resources.

Global Warming sucks up a lot of oxygen in environmental debate, but a probably more pressing issue in the coming decades will be the need to conserve water resources which are not keeping up with rising global population.  As water shortages increase from the Southwestern United States to Yemen to India, look for more conflicts on that issue to flare up.  The makers of the James Bond franchise were one of the few prescient celebrities to draw attention to this issue in the most recent adventure of 007.  The innovation above can do its part by reducing water usage for dishwashing.
