Mister RYE: Organic rye drinking straws made in Australia
Organic, biodegradable drinking straws - SA greentech start-up Mister RYE launched their campaign today 25October. Founded by French entrepreneurs Marion Vigot and Alexis Branlard, Mister Rye is one of the first recipients of Supporting Innovation in South Australia (SISA) program. “We found no beach that was not littered with plastic, and decided there had to be a better way. Our research led us to find out that rye was the original straw, used hundreds of years before plastic.We were determined to source our materials locally, and actively searched for organic farmers to ensure the safety of the finished product.” https://bit.ly/2MLr0mH

Meditating to improve brain health
Neuroscience shows that 50-year-olds can have the brains of 25-year-olds if they sit quietly and do nothing for 15 minutes a day. A study has found that even eight weeks of meditation changed people's brains for the better.https://www.inc.com/melanie-curtin/neuroscience-shows-that-50-year-olds-can-have-brains-of-25-year-olds-if-they-do-this.html

Writing the script for billion dollar industries
Tech23 this week saw Lucy Cooke present her startup, Spacedraft. With film studios, Amazon, Netflix and Apple spending billions annually producing new titles and the Gaming industry continuing to grow, bringing complex visions to life accurately and without delay is a serious business. Every creative endeavour faces friction, loss and frustration when it tries to deliver with nothing but a paper script and sticky notes, whether it be film, game or VR/AR production. Spacedraft solves for these issues, connecting the vision to production and producers, sharing updates and edits with the entire team. Quite literally, watch this space. https://spacedraft.com.au/

An artificial leaf that produces clean gas
A widely-used gas that is currently produced from fossil fuels can instead be made by an ‘artificial leaf’ that uses only sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, and which could eventually be used to develop a sustainable liquid fuel alternative to petrol.www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/artificial-leaf-successfully-produces-clean-gas

Environmental innovations strengthening communities
Energy innovations are critical to reduce the poverty cycle in many communities - at Tech23 we heard of some remote Asian communities where children cycle 8km to charge a battery for 4 hours to power their light & mobiles! Okra Solar is spearheading this new approach to connect communities. Next year their goal is to connect 40K people!! In parallel, our youth is catalysing the much needed action on climate change. Vanessa & the ClimateClever team have built an app that helps schools & local communities measure, audit and remediate their carbon footprint (and save $ on their utility bills)
