Bond is opening a series of small warehouses in basements and storefronts to do delivery differently than the big carriers, in the hopes of making urban delivery quicker and lower-emission.


If you walk down Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, you might see a brightly striped cargo trike leave a small storefront. The location is one in a growing network of “nano distribution centers,” serviced by the electric vehicles, owned by a startup called Bond. Bond doesn’t sell anything itself. Rather, it’s a new urban shipping company that wants to make onli

One study found that 34% of American workers have felt anxious or nervous because of stress. That figure increases for millennials (40%) and generation Zers (54%). However, only slightly more than half of those people respond to medication trials, and only a t

While not as strong as concrete, the bricks could reduce the CO2 footprint of a building, self-heal, and even reproduce.


Concrete may be one of mankind’s worst inventions. While it’s helped us build tall, sturdy buildings, it is causing more damage to our planet than any other material on Earth, largely due to its water use and the carbon footprint of its production. Specifically, grinding stone into clinker, the lumpy gray stuff you see in concrete, accounts for 50% of concrete’s carbon impact. There must be a better way.

Should the cities of the future be made of wood?


Building structures out of wood doesn’t seem like a particularly innovative idea—people have been building wood houses for centuries. But when it comes to new efforts to be sustainable, all-timber construction is the latest advancement. How exactly is a process that requires us to cut down trees more environmentally friendly, though? Sustainable forest management would be crucial, experts say, but if that is part of a global boom in using timber in new constructions, new wood buildings could store up to 700 million t

The way the public treats formerly incarcerated people must change.


The criminal justice system doesn’t work. According to a 2018 report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly 2.2 million adults were held in America’s prisons and jails at the end of 2016.

The situation has become so severe that if the U.S. prison population were a city, it would be the fifth-largest city in the country.
