As we celebrate Earth Day today, we are reminded of a powerful reason to buy American: the out-of-control pollution in China.

It’s not only the cheap, non-union labor in China that is drawing manufacturers to the country. It’s also the lack of environmental protection standards that much of the developed world has set for companies. When a business can destroy the air, land, and water in pursuit of profit, then we all suffer in the long run. Not to mention that it is a completely unsustainable business model.

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY: This building in Austria changes shape every hour

Things I’d never thought I’d say: “I like the way this BUILDING moves”. 

This is the Kiefer Technic Showroom, a building whose moving facade was designed by Ernst Giselbrecht + Partner. Its wall panels can move automatically or manually in order to control building temperature and sunlight.
