Technology may be advancing every day, but nothing compares to the high-speed power of the human brain. We are a long way from creating a single piece of technology that can control your breath and heartbeat 24/7, keep your body humming along while you are deep in sleep, allow you to simultaneously answer email while watching Netflix, help you stay balanced during yoga class, navigate the NYC subway without ever pulling out a map, and experience the pure joy of a beautiful summer day.

Across the globe, about 50 percent of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are tied to materials. The United Nations, for example, estimates that in 41.8 million tonnes (Mt) of electronic waste there is 16 Mt of iron, 1.9 Mt of copper and 300 tonnes of gold, plus other precious metals such as palladium, with a combined value of $52 billion. Therefore, the transition to a circular economy not only contributes to climate action, but can have significant economic benefits as well.

Some of the oldest trees in the world are thousands of years old — like bristlecone pine. They’ve lived through major environment changes, climate shifts, and numerous historical events. There are trees standing today that are older than the establishment of this country, how remarkable.

We can learn a lot from trees, but first we must understand them.

Single serve coffee makers tend to create waste that isn’t recyclable as most of the pods used are made from plastic. And plastic itself is harmful to the environment as it is a petroleum product. Enter the Nespresso machines.
