Protecting the planet

« In nature, only species that live in harmony with their environment survive. » Hubert Reeves

Plundering the natural resources

Due to our current patterns of production and consumption our natural resources are over-exploited and our survival depends on destroyed ecosystems.

Environmental pollution

Due to the piling up of our increasingly toxic waste, the air quality, water and soil are subjected to a steady deterioration that turns nature into an open-air landfill site.

Global warming

Due to human activities, each year new temperatures break records and therefore multiply extreme climatic incidents with ever-increasing damages.

Biodiversity devastation

Due to destruction of natural habitats, demographic pressure and intensive farming practices, the 6th largest mass animal extinction since the dinosaurs had occurred.

Circular economy

Understanding that everything produced, consumed and disposed is part of a cycle in which all waste is first reused, then potentially converted or recycled to avoid being buried or incinerated.

‘The polluter pays’ principle

To include in the price of all market activities, health, social and environmental costs and the payment of the carbon tax by all stakeholders.

Reduction of Greenhouse gases emissions (GHG)

Drastically reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, main contributors to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, in transportation, agriculture, housing and manufacturing.

Biodiversity Protection

To move away from the ‘nature/culture’ dualism that makes us alien to the biosphere and to foster organic links with all living ecosystems in order to switch from anthropocentrism to biocentrism.

J’ai inventé l’éclairage urbain biologique sans électricité sur le principe du biomimétisme
Glowee, start up française, réinvente l'éclairage urbain en remplaçant les enseignes lumineuses énergivores par un procédé basé sur ce qui existe dans la nature. Glowee a développé la bioluminescence, c'est à dire la production et l'émission de lumière par des micro-organismes vivants (lucioles, vers luisants et organismes marins). Ce procédé de bio-éclairage permet un éclairage naturel dans les villes, directement inspiré du vivant. Avec des vitrines, des lampadaires et des éléments de signalétique éclairés avec Glowee, la facture pèse moins sur les collectivités et l'environnement. Contrairement aux auto-collants luminescents, Glowee n'utilise pas de substance radioactive.

A Villa to preserve the planet without leaving your nest

The etymology of the word ‘ecology’ comes from two Greek words ‘Oikos’ house and ‘Logos’ science. What could be more symbolic than applying the precepts of ecology at home?
This is the focus of this living space whose building materials, as well as items and products used in everyday life, will be selected in order to respect as much as possible the balance of natural ecosystems.
