Developments in the industry are most often based on sustainability. However, most people in general don’t see the process of these changes, only the end result. And while the end result might be a different product, they don’t exactly know what is different about it. It could be the processing, transport, recycling, CO2, output, etc. Our goal is to inform people about the scientific sustainability changes that are being made in the industry. To attract multiple different readers and not only focus on the scientific output of a change, the articles will present ideas such as changes in food, clothing, consumer energy sources. With this we hope to inform people with a general interest in sustainable changes and generate a starting point to spark a conversation.
