Recycling is a process that changes one material (waste) into a new product in order to re-use the useful materials from the original product ...

Harnessing the power of internet to create something good

Harnessing the power of internet to create something good

I've always been fascinated by the paradox of social platforms such as facebook. On the one side, it allows us to be better connected, on the other it does have the nasty tendency of pulling us apart rather than together.
