  • before we begin shout out to square space for sponsoring today's video.

  • I hope you're ready.

  • Meet Cara.

  • Hello.

  • My name is Kara.

  • And I had an idea.

  • This is the story of how can I'm created something out off nothing.

  • One day he was riding a bus and noticed that when the bus went fast, it created with E on that wind he thought can return into energy.

  • Yes.

  • After lots of work and research, he invented a device that can make energy from the wind of the bus next toe and energy from the heat off the sun above it.

  • 100% green on 100% sustainable.

  • Because each of these devices for now, can light up one full house in Turkey.

  • But when million's off, these are built around the world.

  • The world will be a better place to live in.

  • That's why these are the ideas that we need to promote.

  • And these are the people that we need to support.

  • That's what minutes.

  • See you tomorrow.

  • Hey, the person you see next to me amaze me.

  • And I think she will amaze you too.

  • Hi.

  • My name is Sharon Barack.

  • Because this person is solving the plastic pollution problem.

  • Yes, this problem.

  • It's no secret by now that plastic is hurting the environment.

  • Every year we produce 300 million tons of plastic and 50% of that ISS single use plastic like this.

  • You use it once for a few seconds, you throw it away and it stays in nature for hundreds off years in the forest and in the oceans, causing harm toe everyone.

  • Single use plastic is a problem, and that's where Sharon comes in.

  • This chemical engineer used to work at a plastic company until she quit to go solve the plastic problem.

  • After years of research and hard work, she made a unique product that looks like plastic that functions like plastic.

  • But it's not really plastic because this product, it's not plastic at all, but it looks and feels like one.

  • So how many materials did you mix?

  • Oh, it So when you put her product in the water, it dissolves.

  • Within minutes after you finish using it and you throw it away, it will just go back, breakdown and biodegrade in nature and really plastic stays the same.

  • Her product is so environmentally friendly that even when it disappears in water, you can still drink it from this material.

  • She can make plastics for packaging for food, covering for bottles for anything on when it works.

  • It really has the potential to sell this problem and make the world a better place cleaner.

  • E.

  • Now Sharon has assembled a team here in Israel to take over the world with her invention.

  • And it's so exciting, you know, to do it my way to know that I can really do in influence.

  • She is eight months pregnant and together with her partner is working every single day to make the world better for her Children.

  • Meet Blue.

  • Hi, my name is Lou and I want you to finish your beer.

  • Why?

  • Because she only wants your glass Blue lives in the beautiful island off Zanzibar, but because it's an island.

  • Glasses are used, then thrown away with no recycling facilities, and this is mostly from tourists, so she and her team decided to do something about it.

  • For every 20 bottles they collect, one turns into e candlelight.

  • One turns into a product like this and 18 the crush entirely and cement a few special secrets and bam!

  • They can make a really functioning brick that can be used to build houses in a more sustainable way for everyone.

  • House.

  • We can save 50 0 bottles and save you money.

  • And your house should be twice as strong and nature twice as beautiful.

  • But this solution takes years to perfect.

  • And if they finally make it work, we'll see a lot of houses that are actually made off glass.

  • That's what it Hi.

  • The guy you see next to me is solving one of the hardest problems in the world.

  • Hi, my name is Merino.

  • But first, let me tell you what the problem is.

  • Pollution see lakes like this one are contaminated on.

  • According to data, this is the case for 40% of the world's lakes and rivers.

  • So when Marino's childhood lake also got contaminated, I had to do something about it.

  • This scientist with a PhD degree from a Japanese university took a break from school, went to a bank, got alone and dedicated his time to fix my leg.

  • He came up with a unique solution.

  • You put this solution in dirty league water and bam.

  • The solution attracts the contaminated particles and floats them to the top.

  • This'll is so environmentally friendly that you can eat it because it is 100% organic.

  • So after 15 minutes you can see the difference between a clean and polluted water.

  • If I can clean this cop, then I can clean whole lake.

  • So he went to his childhood lake and dropped a ton of his solution.

  • Treated it with bio filters, nanotechnology and crazy biology.

  • And after a few months, he was able to transform the lake from this to this, a full 180 degree transformation that created a lake clean off parasites, bacteria and pollution.

  • The birds came back and people did to What is this method that you used?

  • I use another technology, but another technology used in the wastewater treatment.

  • But I used in the wetland on the natural habitat.

  • And why don't more people do this?

  • Because it's expensive.

  • It's very hard, but it's not impossible.

  • It's not impossible.

  • That's why now Marino is thinking big.

  • He wants to clean Peru's biggest lake.

  • This'll this with an entire team.

  • PhDs in science, millions of dollars in funding, patented technology and a noble goal off making the world cleaner for everyone.

  • I hope you're inspired by that video Saving planet Earth is incredibly important.
