The recent development of the Internet as the first truly global social organization has brought us full circle back to the most fundamental principle of our development – our relationships with one another. For the first time in history we have the capacity to fashion a global social network in which each individual is empowered to draw upon the resources of the entire world and also directly contribute to the enhancement of our collective social capacities. The fabric of society is an ever-expanding, continuously evolving, increasingly complex and effective social network.
However, the bleaching of chemical pulps has the potential to cause significant environmental damage, primarily through the release of organic materials into waterways. Pulp mills are almost always located near large bodies of water because they require substantial quantities of water for their processes. An increased public awareness of environmental issues from the 1970s and 1980s, as evidenced by the formation of organizations like Greenpeace , influenced the pulping industry and governments to address the release of these materials into the environment.  Environmental NGO pressure was especially intense on Swedish and Finnish pulp and paper companies. 
The application of 3D printing in healthcare literally makes the body into a system of interchangeable parts The application of 3D printing in healthcare literally makes the body into a system of interchangeable parts ( Banham, 2013 ). For example, in February 2013, doctors and engineers in the Netherlands collaborated on the 3D printing of a prosthetic lower jaw, which was subsequently implanted into an 83-year-old woman who suffered from chronic bone infection. The printer produced the prosthetic jaw from 33 layers of titanium powder that were heated, fused together, and then coated with bioceramic artificial bone ( Banham, 2013 ). Artificial limbs can be created by the same technology, as can custom hearing aids and dental fixtures ( Thompson, 2012 ).
