During long London winters I often dream about summer. But then I remember how hot it gets on my commute.

Luckily scientists have invented a material that could make summers more manageable by keeping buildings cooler and more comfortable thanks to passive cooling technology.

I certainly look forward to cooler temperatures during summer, but I worry that replacing this material as it wears out might create a vast amount of rubbish.
