A sustainable meal plan filled with recipes for Earth Day

Not all food is created equal, and not all foods are healthy for the planet. You’ve seen the headlines. Manufacturing plants suck up water, pollute with chemicals and damage the surrounding landscape. Raising cattle and other livestock is also associated with earth-damaging consequences. Most environmentalists agree that plant-based products offer the best balance of nutrition and sustainability. Earth Day is right around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to focus on foods that show our love...

Karim Rashid Designs a Single-Serving Wine Bottle for Usual Wines

From ancient Egypt to Greece and China, civilizations have produced their own wines with local ingredients fir generations.

New hope for plastic recycling with IBM's VolCat technology

Think how much more material would be reused if plastic recycling didn’t entail washing, sorting and individual processing. Now, IBM researchers have developed a new chemical process called VolatileCatalyst that eliminates these steps.

The Vermicular Cast Iron System Introduces Induction to Traditional Japanese Cooking Methods

Cooking is one of those rare areas where many ancient tools still tend to hold up just as well as their modern counterparts. Take, for example, bamboo steamers, wrapping fish in banana leaves, or—a slightly more modern innovation—the mushikamado, a predecessor to the modern rice cooker developed in the early 1900s. Mushikamado was designed in such a way that a ceramic or cast iron pot could hang over direct heat; the vessel's ability to heat evenly allowed for rice to cook over a charcoal fire w...
