Municipal solid waste (MSW) production is a global ecological challenge. This year, many countries established sustainability regulations to decrease adverse climate change effects. A significant concern about global waste production is the related greenhouse gas emissions. Nations can shrink their carbon footprints by decreasing MSW. Three countries are generating the most pollution, which limits conservation […]
Adopting a vegan (or vegetarian) diet seems like a logical step for anyone wanting to minimize their environmental impact and be a better dweller of Planet Earth. After all, research shows food from animal sources makes for one of the main contributors to carbon emissions, freshwater use, water pollution, and air pollution. However, while a […]
Residents can shrink their carbon footprints by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions associated with their homes. Minimizing local air pollution can enhance ecological conservation and protect community members’ health, whereas inhaling emissions may cause asthma and other respiratory illnesses. Reducing air pollution also enhances climate change prevention measures. You can consciously increase your home’s sustainability […]
We often hear about the world’s problems with air pollution, but what exactly are we breathing in out there and does it stay in our lungs? This week on The Biofriendly Podcast, we separate the smog from the particulate matter, learn more ways to reduce emissions, and is it dangerous to light your farts on fire?

Sustainable gardening is farming without using fertilizers and pesticides that can affect our water and soil. These farming methods can help reduce waste and also preserve natural resources […]
It’s fair to say climate change is the defining problem of the 21st century (so far, at least). CO2, while not the most dangerous greenhouse gas, is the one we produce in quantity—and with transportation responsible for 28% of CO2 emissions in the US, it’s also one we can significantly reduce by transitioning to electric […]
As devastating as the COVID-19 pandemic has been, there is, at least, something good to have come from it. When the world went into lockdown, for just a little while, our Earth got a bit of a reprieve from the abuses we humans heap upon it. In China, carbon emissions fell by more than 25% […]
