It is no secret that our planet isn’t in the best shape. The poles’ protective ice is melting, there’s a hole in the ozone layer, and no one can figure out quickly enough how to replace CO2- producing cars. As more people become aware of the less-than-ideal state of our environment, Earth’s more savvy inhabitants are finding creative ways to reduce their footprint.
