Our sister site TreeHugger delivers all the freshest news on environmental news and culture. Here are items from the past week we thought you’d dig, even if you’ve never recycled.
Technology is—undeniably—wedging itself deeper into our daily lives. Smartphones are one example of this march but, soon, donning wearable technology is going to be as common as putting on clothes. The good news is that some of this technology is going to help make us healthier.
