An interesting quick list on how bacteria, given that now we have the ability to manipulate things of microorganism scale, can, and is being used to improve everyday aspects of our world. Specifically: creating building materials, repairing concrete, detecting pollution, and growing packaging. The ever-growing field of grown objects with purpose vs. even grown materials is a huge jump in waste-elimination practices. Very exciting! Thanks, TreeHugger!!
