As Arctic ice melts, disease spreads — The Daily Climate

As Arctic ice melts, disease spreads — The Daily Climate | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

 A cow grazing on the lush pasturelands of Cornwall in southwest England and a seal swimming in the ice cold waters of the Arctic might not appear to have much in common. 

Yet the two are increasingly linked by tuberculosis, with a strain of the disease threatening cattle populations in Britain and elsewhere now showing up among seals in the high Arctic.

But the company may be hoping to chip away at that reputation with a new campaign that heralds its launch of a "greener" form of packaging.

The Upcycle

The Upcycle | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

What drives us? The simple fact that so much garbage is left to be destroyed or left to be forgotten, to search for further solutions/possibilities in transforming this waste into useful, efficient and gorgeous products.
