Technology has progressed more than one could have ever imagined in the 21st century. Since 2005 alone, we have seen major developments including the ever so popular Facebook, Tesla and the iPhone. With its ubiquity, it seems as though we will only continue to be immersed by an ever changing, fast-paced technological environment. Such progress has also enhanced our ability to “go green,” not just in our personal lives but also in our businesses.
Entire buildings are able to go green. Some amazing examples are seen in Cat DiStasio’s article, 6 Futuristic Building Technologies That Will Change the World. These include: a building in Milan that cleans the air by absorbing smog and turning it into salts, a building in Hamburg powered by algae, self-healing concrete in Amsterdam, glass roof tiles in Sweden which heat a building using sunlight and a playhouse which is insulated by mushrooms. Not only are these structures environmentally friendly, they are also aesthetically pleasing. If entire buildings can be green, one can easily make a few small changes to help their business be more eco-friendly.
