Nick Lewis says that his new Adjustable Eco Hanger will save 6.5 million tons of carbon each year, the equivalent of removing 1.5 million cars from the road. He figures this based on the 40 billion hangers a year that are used globally, many of which are discarded, especially by retailers.
Researchers at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have, for the first time, scientifically measured the spread of emotions on the same scale that measures disease transmission.

It was the Save The Beach Hotel designed by German artist HA Schult and it was built to emphasize World Environment Day.
