First, John visits the Daramazas vineyards in Spain, where grape varieties grown since the 1700s are used by Emperador to craft the world’s finest brandies. He learns how Emperador combines the latest sustainable viniculture technology such as soil sensors, smart irrigation systems and drones, with ancient growing methods – to create perfect ecological synergy.
Andrea Ocampo shows viewers how Ortho Clinical Diagnostics addresses sustainability, with energy efficiency and water conservation initiatives. From developing the world’s first tests for HIV and hepatitis C antibody detection – to the first FDA-authorized high-volume COVID-19 test – Ortho Clinical Diagnostics has been a pioneering leader in the in vitro diagnostics space for more than 80 years. By serving more than 800,000 people every day with critical medical tests – the importance of Ortho’s motto becomes clear: “Because Every Test Is a Life.”
John travels to southern Germany, to discover an intriguing solution to one of the world’s most serious environmental problems: food waste. Multivac creates food packaging options that can significantly reduce plastic usage and utilize highly renewable materials – all while extending the shelf life of valuable food which would otherwise be wasted. These innovative solutions also offer high recycling potential, adding to their sustainability.
Next, John goes to Channahon, Illinois to discover why all plastic is not created equal. One company, INEOS Styrolution, is educating people about the many valuable and essential benefits of plastics like polystyrene. INEOS Styrolution is dedicated to advancements in plastics recycling technologies. From production to re-use, they are closing the loop to keep plastics in a circular economy and out of landfills.
Finally, John travels to the South Padre Island National Seashore in Texas to find out how sea turtle rescuers are saving thousands of these beautiful creatures from cold ocean temperatures. They’re taken to Texas State Aquarium’s Wildlife Rescue Center, where experts care for them – along with all kinds of indigenous animals, including flamingoes, dolphins and ocelots. It’s a great place for visitors to learn all about how important they are to our environment.
