Everybody wants to make this planet a better place. What we keep forgetting is that saving the planet is actually all about saving our environment and our lives.
With pollution, toxins, and hazardous materials, it sometimes feels like it’s too late to save Earth. But there are lots of great solutions out there that could be good to our environment and humankind.
Here are 12 materials that can save our environment from an ecological disaster.
1. Protein from squid could replace nylon and polyester.
The protein from squid is durable, biodegradable, and recyclable.
2. Improved cotton requires less water and just few harmful chemicals.
Lyocell (or tencel) easily decomposes. It can also be used as a secondary raw material.

5. Packaging made out of mushrooms.
Mushrooms can replace plastic packaging and even leather.

8. Bamboo toothbrushes
Biodegradable bamboo toothbrushes are clearly a lot better than using plastic ones.
9. 3D swimwear
Eco-friendly swimsuits are made out of sponge-like materials and are printed through 3D printers.

Russia’s eco-friendly disposable tableware is made out of apple puree. You can eat it, or you can throw it away but without having to worry about hurting the planet.
11. Railroad tracks made of recycled plastic bottles.
12. Reusable drinking straws
Straws made from bamboo, glass, or metal are reusable that you can bring with you anytime and anywhere.
