Tiger Beer Air-­Ink Made from Pollution

Tiger Beer Air-­Ink Made from Pollution | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Tiger Beer is sponsoring Air‐Ink, an innovative range of pens, markers and spray cans made from recycled air pollution. Graviky Labs, Bangalore, an off-shoot of MIT Media Lab, Boston, spent three years designing unique devices to capture soot from vehicles’ exhausts. These were fitted to trucks, ferries, chimneys and even cranes around Hong Kong and India. The captured pollutants were then purified and turned into safe, reliable ink for everyday use. Overall, 150 litres of Air­‐Ink has been produced, approximating to 2500 hours worth of typical diesel car emissions.  | read all  & see more photos  at theinspirationroom

Creative acts are one of the human race’s defining characteristics. The ability to turn thoughts into music or art or literature for the purposes of self expression has always helped to separate us from less-sophisticated species.

.Young Al spent the better part of the next six years in Zarasai, the “Siberia of Lithuania.” There was no running water, a shortage of food (he stole produce) — and no toys..
