Graviky Labs Air-Ink converter is a handy filtering device that you can affix to car exhaust. The filter collects and hydrates the soot which is then processed to create ink for Air-Ink pens and markers. Each marker holds the equivalent of 45 minutes of diesel car pollution.

The green energy-powered and 7-meter tall Smog Free Tower acts as a large vacuum cleaner that uses positive ionizing technology to collect smog particles and delivers clean air in public spaces, such as parks. 

Minds Eye Design also reports on the Groasis Waterboxx Plant Cocoon. Designed for growing trees in deserts, areas with irregular rainfall, and poor soil, this technique can be used for tree farming anywhere.

The cocoon protects the plants from the sun and competing weeds while ensuring that 100% of water reaches the plant root in the first three years.

Modular Artificial Reef Structure or MARS consists of 3D ceramic modules that can be assembled to make an artificial coral reef — a habitat for millions of species of fish, crustaceans, and mollusks. 

Artificial reefs are important for the rehabilitation of ocean ecosystems, especially in areas where natural reefs have been damaged by human activity such as irresponsible fishing or coral bleaching.
