Kaagaz: A Bold New Innovation to Save Paper and Trees

Kaagaz: A Bold New Innovation to Save Paper and Trees

Green Living
By the time you finish reading this post, more than 199 tons of paper will have been produced. About 3,068,381 trees will already have been chopped down for those sheets. And since making each kilogram of paper requires a whopping 324 liters of water – 58,479,732 liters will have been soaked up by the very same paper. 42% of all global wood harvest is eaten up by our paper needs. Is this easily replaceable commodity really what we want to spend our forest resources on, seeing as now we have plentiful technological alternatives? Maybe, we do want that. Because even though a reduction in paper usage was predicted due to the electronic revolution, that never actually happened. In fact, the demand for paper is expected to double by 2030. People simply don't want to stop using paper.

Honey, the Long Forgotten Cure for Many Diseases

Honey, the Long Forgotten Cure for Many Diseases

Green Living
Honey is one substance that all of us have tasted at least once in our lifetime. Unfortunately, many of us today consider honey either to be a delicacy or something to be eaten in the event of throat infection. Fewer among us consume honey for short term health benefits like while trying to get a slim and trip body. However, there has been a large-scale disconnect with honey as a daily food item among the urban dwellers of today. This has largely happened since the popularity of factory-made sugar and the availability of sweeteners and similar food items. There is enough evidence today to indicate that our daily sugar (actually sucrose) consumption in tea, coffee or other forms has considerable health implications. Consequently, some companies have now started manufacturing non-suga...
Stuck with a Dumb pdf Form, Here’s How to Fill it Without Printing It

Stuck with a Dumb pdf Form, Here’s How to Fill it Without Printing It

Green Living
Save paper, save trees! When the Internet technology was first envisioned a few decades ago, it was believed that it would make the world paper free by the turn of the century. Unfortunately, we are far from realizing that dream even in 2015. While paper use may have reduced to some extent, it is something which is still constantly consumed in our day-to-day activities. For instance, how often do we get stuck with an online form which is available in a pdf form and simply cannot be typed in. This dumb pdf form needs to either be converted into a Word/Open Office file format which comes with its own hassles and doing so is not everybody's cup of tea. We also resort to copy-pasting it into a Word processor but even that jumbles up the form and makes the task even more complicated. Ulti...
