On the positive side, Moderna has already reported their Omicron booster should be available in early 2022. MRNA vaccines, such as those manufactured by Pfizer and Moderna, can be quickly updated, and businesses have adapted to containment measures, ensuring that the blow from each lockdown has lessened.

Not just those dramatic fashion extremes (i.e., literally wearing an outfit made of water bottles), but a real and soft cloth that can be sewn into a number of different clothes. Recycling plastic is now great for both the environment and the wardrobe. This very interesting article demystifies how plastic is spun into threads for clothing.
