I never knew this could be a Thing, but it’s definitely a #1Thing. Thanks to friends from the MIT Media Lab in Boston, Anirudh Sharma and Nikhil Kaushik invented Air-Ink, a professional art supply made directly from car exhaust and soot.
- cars release about 20% of the world’s carbon dioxcide
- people breathe in an average of 2 gallons of polluted air a minute
Sharma, Kaushik, and the rest of their team at Graviky Labs have cleaned 1.6 trillion liters of air since officially capturing pollution last June. This is impressive and what they do w/ the exhaust and soot turn it into a work of art literally. Environmental Art... “The more Air-Ink we use, the less pollution we breathe—simple,” Click here to see some of the Amazing art and how it’s done! #1Thing that is helping Mama Earth and getting lots cool points too!

Starting October 2, Austin Recourse Recovery is adding 38,000 more customers to the Curbside Composting Collection w/ plans to add all curbside customers to get this service by 2020. The composting program collects food scraps, yard trimmings and food soiled paper. They are converted into nutrient – rich compost. The goal ATX’s Zero Waste goal is to get 90 of materials out of landfills by 2040.
There was a recent study that showed close to 1/2 of everything residential customers send to the landfill is compostable. When compostable material is buried in a landfill, the materials don’t break down properly as they would if in a cmopost pile. This is a #1Thing hat helps ATX Big Time!
