Welcome to the Happy Eco News weekly roundup.

This week, we have a guest post by  Dr. Christine Ward-Paige, founder of eOceans, who writes about an app that tracks shark populations, including their threats and where they are thriving, around the world using observations made by all ocean explorers.

We also have stories about companies composting clothing, how nature can clean up our waterways, hempcrete insulation, a distillery helping to save oyster populations, and the top sustainability apps.

If you wish to help support this project, Happy Eco News also has a Patreon account where you can help financially (and get fun gifts). Every penny counts. 

We all need some positive news, and that’s what Happy Eco News is here for.
