I’m not a fan of all the latest fads, but it’s good to know there are a few trends that are still gaining ground.
They’re not just about technology or clothing, though.
The most important trend is in the way we interact with our environment.
The way we dress and the way our food is prepared are important because it is in our control, says Sarah Baughman, a senior lecturer at the Australian National University.
Silk screens and silk sheets are becoming more and more popular.
They allow us to be more visible and more comfortable.
And they allow us, like a natural extension of our skin, to see things that are otherwise invisible.
We’re all aware that the environment is changing, but we’re also all aware of our own skin, says Baughmans research associate.
We are all more aware of what is affecting our skin than what is in it.
What we see in our skin and how we react to that are really important.
Baughwoman, Baughmann and her colleague Dr Andrew Lees found that while there was a decrease in pollution in the 1950s, the increase in pollution has been reversed since the 1960s.
They also found that pollution was increasing in many areas and that it was becoming more of a problem for those who were living in cities.
“Our study also suggests that the use of plastic is increasing,” says Boughman.
“So, the plastic that is in cities is more likely to be plastic than it is to be of high quality.”
But while plastic pollution is rising in cities, the amount of waste being thrown away has not increased.
“We have a lot of waste in our environment,” she says.
“What’s more, we don’t want it to continue increasing and the amount we throw away is increasing.”
Baughmen says that although there are many ways to clean our environment, one way is to make it better.
“The key to making our environment better is not to just clean it up, but to do it more effectively, she says, adding that one way to do this is by using technology and other means.
The research team from the University of Western Australia and the University in Queensland collaborated with a team from Oxford University.
The results were published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
The study was funded by the Australian Research Council, the Australian Government, the University and the Queensland Government.
