We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s already the last Friday in February (how did THAT happen so fast??), and time again for some good news to take you into March with a smile. This will be my first good-news post of 2020. Somehow I missed the January post, but I’m making up for it today.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is in keeping with my habit of reporting on innovations and ideas that are good for the environment and, therefore, good for all of us. It’s the story of a lab at Rice University that has discovered a way to turn carbon-based items (think food waste and plastic) into graphene, which traps greenhouse gases and is used to make more environmentally-friendly building materials.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a worldwide blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

Your cohosts for this month are Eric Lahti, Shilpa Garg, Sylvia McGrath, Peter Nena, and Belinda Witzenhausen. And if you want to read more uplifting articles, please visit the WATWB Facebook page here or the Twitter home page here to find links to other stories.
