Life expectancy is related to both, the production of synthetic chemicals and sustainability. Our sustenance depends on a lot of things – food, shelter, energy, medicines, technologies etc. However, if I had to write an essay on the boons and banes of technology, like they made us do in schools, I’d easily mention the importance of green technology.

It is relative to geography, climatic conditions, and also the people who use it.
