Doing laundry is a mundane task.

Throw your clothes in the washer, pour a cap full of laundry detergent, press start, and walk away.

Not much thought is put into doing the laundry.

We don’t think of the impact it has on the environment.

Let’s take a look at what laundry detergent is made of and how it impacts the environment.

What Chemicals Are In Laundry Detergent

Took the plunge and enrolled in the Understanding Plants-Part 1: What a Plant Knows on Coursera. Decided to make this move because I want to transition from a career in IT to a career in Environmental Science.

There’re other subjects in Environmental Science that interest me. Ecology, Biology, Environmental Economics, Plant Science, and Chemistry just to name a few. For now, I’ll start at the foundation which I think are plants and this course is a great place to start learning.

The course is offered by Tel Aviv University and taught by Professor Daniel Chamovitz, Ph.D. …

Our planet is going through a lot of changes. Pollution in the air and water are on the rise, storms are becoming more chaotic and severe every year, and more animals are becoming endangered or have already become extinct.

A lot of the damages done to the earth is from our doing. We are the ones polluting the air and water, indirectly putting animals endangered of becoming extinct or already are. It appears we don’t care about other live forms on this plant. I have one question for humanity:

Are you willing to make sacrifices to save and protect the…

Do you find the sport of golf relaxing?

I never played 18-hole golf before, but I have gone to a gold range like Top Golf with some friends in Houston.

I had a lot of fun and I’m sure it would be the same amount of fun on the golf course. From what I can tell living close to one, the people playing are having a great time.

You’re out in nature with the sun shining bright with no clouds in the sky, cool breeze hitting your face, and spending time with friends. …

I cut out meat like pork and beef from my diet months ago when I found out they were bad for my health. Numerous studies and research have found that eating meat like beef and pork are the leading causes of diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. Clearly, consuming these animal products isn’t healthy for our bodies.

There’s an understanding now that eating meat is bad for our bodies and switching to a plant-based diet is much better for us. However, does shutting down the production of meat and dairy have an effect on the environment? …

Feel like you aren’t going enough to clean the environment?

We do everything we can to make sure our homes are clean. We mop, sweep, vacuum, and dust. However, we seem to fall behind when it comes to cleaning the planet.

We leave trash all over the streets, dump plastic in our oceans, and emit a lot of carbon dioxide to poison our air. We need to do better.

We need to clean up our planet like we clean up our houses. What can we do to clean our planet? …

It would be great to travel in an RV. You have everything you need from a bedroom to a kitchen and a bathroom. Great way to save some money from paying rent or a mortgage.

The only problem is RVs needing to be hooked up to shore power or a generator when not traveling. Also having to stay in RV parks is pretty limiting to people that want to stay elsewhere.

People with RVs want to live off-grid, away from city life and out in the wilderness. Two companies came together to give you the RV of your dreams.

We have apps that track how many steps we take a day. Apps that track our health metrics, where we lost our keys or wallets, and even track what our children are doing on their phones.

But what about an app that can track your personal carbon footprint in real-time? And what if that app was funded by an oil company? Say hello to VYVE.

VYVE tracks your carbon footprint whether you travel by car, bus, or train. …

Our planet is being bombarded every day with pollutants coming from our factories, power plants, and cars. These activities are causing the climate to deteriorate at an alarming rate. We need to move to a cleaner, more sustainable source of energy. When we think of clean energy for our cars, electric cars with a battery comes to mind. But there is another source we can use to power our cars and trucks. That source is hydrogen.

Hydrogen power is a cleaner alternative to gasoline we use today. At one time it was predicted to be the future of energy. Hydrogen…

We’re in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The virus has affected and killed many people throughout the year, especially people with preexisting conditions.

The question that comes to mind is: Can a plant-based diet protect people from COVID-19? The answer, switching to a plant-based diet can help protect you from COVID-19.

Plenty of research has been conducted on the health benefits of a plant-based diet and the results are stunning. Having a plant-based diet is connected to lower chances of heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, and cancer. …
