Carbon emisssions that go into the atmosphere are the pivot of environmental talks, and for a good reason, since they are the main cause of global warming (switching to alternative energy is one of the solutions to that). There are lots of earth-level environmental issues that need to be dealt with urgently such as water treatment and some people are dealing with them in an amazing way.
CBS has a great article on Eco Machine (see video below), a natural way to treat wastewater and turn it into clean water that seems to have come out of the faucet. The system uses plants, gravel, sand, bacteria and fish to digest waste, forgoing chemicals that are todayâ€™s standard and which are far from ideal.
The Eco Machine is a project run by the Omega Center for Sustainable Living and it cleans up to 40,000 gallons of water per day for the Center. Designed by John Todd, a pioneer in ecological design, this water reclamation system takes inspiration in nature to deal with an issue that all municipalities grapple with.
