Terra Case cases are made of 100% biodegradable, compostable material and arrive in recycled packaging. Each Terra Case is made from a special plant-derived material that decomposes 100% in 6-24 months under compostable conditions, unlike traditional plastic that pollute the environment for 200-1000 years. Each Terra Case is unique in that the plant seeds appear in small patches, giving the case a special pattern. After each case purchase, 3kg (300 PET bottles) of plastic garbage is removed from the oceans in collaboration with The Plastic Bank.
Eco-friendly Pela cases are the world's first sustainable phone cases. Pela’s mission is to achieve a waste-free future. Pela's working with several environmental organizations (e.g., Save the Waves, Surfrider Foundation, Oceana). The material is a combination of plant-based biopolymers, flax straw waste and recycled materials. The flax-infused biopolymers provide added texture and impact resistance, helping to protect your phone and the environment.
Breathe London combines state-of-the-art technology with new data analytics to better understand Londoners’ exposure to air pollution. Measuring harmful pollution at thousands of locations informs data-driven solutions to clean up our dirty air and foster healthier, stronger communities.
With cutting-edge sensor technology and research, Breathe London’s three complementary projects will help us understand what’s happening at the ground-level where people live, work and play.

A total of ten air quality sensors are available for loan at Itäkeskus, Vallila and Viikki libraries and Central Library Oodi. The air quality sensors measure the carbon monoxide content of outdoor air, and the results of the measurements can be viewed on a downloadable smart phone application.
The city of Herzogenrath plans to cover its energy demand with zero CO2 emissions by 2030. Building on an existing solar farm operated by GREEN Solar, the concept involves, among other things, expanding the generation of power from solar energy as well as building a number of wind turbines. The power generated from renewable sources will be stored and converted into electricity during times when no energy is produced from sun and wind, and supplied to homes in Herzogenrath.
Cool Streets combines scientific research and public engagement, working with local communities to implement effective street tree plantings that provide shade in heat-affected urban areas and reduce CO2 emissions. Cool Streets provides a practical way for people to take action. Residents, community groups, schools, councils, housing corporations and developers can get involved and achieve environmental, economic and social benefits for their local area.
A significant part of the facade and roof of the MOL well in Istenhegyi út is also covered with evergreen plants, which insulate in winter and reduce the temperature in the building on warm summer days, provide oxygen-rich fresh air all year round and neutralize about 10 tons of CO2 gas per year. When designing the shop at the gas station, they tried to rely on recycled materials as much as possible, and plenty of organic products were also placed on the shelves.
The outdoor green wall and flower column scientific research program was launched in Debrecen in 2007, which later called the HIB (Hort-in-Box) project to integrate the latest scientific, biotechnological and engineering knowledge into a biologically balanced, multi-aesthetic, horticultural and technical , a modular plant habitat controlled in part by precision high-tech devices, by displaying it as a “mini garden” or a “box garden”.
One Central Park is currently the tallest building in Australia, covered with vegetation. Designed by Jean Nouvel and Patrick Black, the 166-meter-high building was built in 2013. The façade of the building is covered with 350 species of plants native to Australia. Their motorized mirrors on the roof reflect the sun’s rays so that the plants in the shadier parts of the building also get enough light. A 15 km stainless steel wire rope and 5,500 planters were used for the green walls.
