The need for sustainable products and services is increasing rapidly. A major part contributing to this increase in need is greed. Man always needs more, more than what he has, more than what is required. We go to great lengths to get what we desire, necessary or not. This has led to a lot of problems for everyone involved in the process and most importantly our home the earth. A lot of the young generation are concerned about their future on this planet. Entrepreneurs, talented kids make use of their facilities and invent new ways to help save our earth. Global warming is something which is taken for granted by many unaware of the dangers slowly unfolding right in front of them, many fail to consider it a serious matter. Hopefully 2020-2021 has taught us to be more concerned about our health, hygiene, planning in advance for unforeseen problems. As society slowly understands the need to improve our ways of living, we are one step forward in our journey towards a better future.
Sustainability, a word brought to light when we struggle to find easy solutions to the difficult damage we caused to ourselves blinded by ambition. Global warming, sea levels rising, overpopulation, pollution, inequality, poverty, unemployment, health problem increase in all ages and many more are the problems which need to be fixed. With the 7.9 billion people in the world, fixing it will not be easy. Small steps are key. In each and every sector we have scientists working day and night to figure out a more sustainable way to live.
Sustainability is using resources at hand and minimising damage done to the environment with better methods. In the food industry, the process of production of edible meat has been an issue of concern. The treatment of animals in these facilities are being criticized by animal activists and the public. Many scientists have found solutions for this problem.
Singapore is the first country in the world to approve lab produced meat to be used in restaurants for the public. Using the left over feathers of the chicken to produce meat has also proven to be effective. But producing these on a large scale and mass production will be expensive and convincing the public to invest will be a task. Many industries have developed sustainable ways to continue production and are slowly making change. Sustainability is our future, and a bright one too.
“We are living on this planet as if we had another one to go to.”
