Can we clean the oceans? Or stop the trash at the source: us?
Green cars are now becoming more popular and auto makers are queuing up to make them. But how long can the industry keep going on government assistance? And does the car have any future?
I should have been tracking my weight while I was doing this challenge! All my usual chocolates and softdrinks are bad for my waistline as well as creating extra landfill. The time spent cooking from scratch wasn't all that much longer than using packaged food either.
Some foods create a 'need' for packaging that didn't exist before: single serves of peanut paste? self-heating, pre-mixed coffee? I really think we can do without them.
Nude food is a challenge, but I'm finding it satisfying to try - my most recent attempt was a Sunday spent at home.
Nuclear power is back on the political agenda, with companies like Rio Tinto pushing the Government to make a decision by 2020, and Resources Minister Martin Ferguson saying we shouldn't rule it out.
One of the ways you can get closer to the nude food ideal is to look at what reuseable items you've got around the house, ready and waiting to help you out on the days you're eating away from home.
If you've got a moment to spare, we've caught wind of a survey that wants to gauge your attitudes towards green marketing - and the company will offset 100 kg of carbon for everyone that takes part!
Reduce, reuse, recycle - if I can't avoid packaging, how will I dispose of it?
With 743,000 tonnes of drink containers in our landfill each year, you just know that the recycling message isn't getting through.
