This is honestly something that bothers me a lot - with so much money and pressure being applied to developing renewable energy solutions and electric cars it's hard to believe that a problem on the same magnitude as global warming continues to be overlooked. What is perhaps more concerning is we are all encouraged to recycle but only a very small percentage of recyclable waste actually makes it through the process, with the rest going to landfill anyway or incinerated into the atmosphere! I am more than keen to investigate how we as makers and engineers could improve the situation with technology, much like Team BLISS have done, to solve what is in my opinion an environmental emergency.

@ElectricJosh thanks for sharing your thoughts too. It feels like it's too little too late in some ways because of the time it takes for environmental messages to get to a place where they are actually taken seriously! Let's keep looking for opportunities and ways we can help :)

@leonie It is sad to see the lack of responsiveness and leadership in the places we need it the most. On the upside I think the general public is starting to adopt these environmental responsibilities more willingly which is really great to see and I think leading by example is the best way we can make a difference. :)
