Bite sized chunks of good news to brighten your day.


  • Fancy Harry Styles reading you a bedtime story to help you nod off? There's something very soothing about Styles' mellifluous tones and the good news is that he's just voiced a sleep-encouraging story for meditation app Calm. Sweet dreams!

  • Evian’s new 100% recycled plastic bottle comes without a label. The bottle, which has the brand name engraved onto the recycled plastic, is part of Evian’s effort to become fully circular by 2025.

  • Richer than Croesus: NASA to check out an asteroid that's potentially worth more than our global economy.

  • Scotland: A project that uses drones to deliver urgent medical supplies to remote regions will be expanded this winter following a successful trial

  • Ecosia is probably not a name you recognise, but OGN thinks you might like to know about this non-profit web search alternative to Google. Ecosia uses ad revenue from its traffic to replant the earth and has now planted over 100 million trees. You search the web, they plant trees.

  • Wearable air-con: Would you wear an air-conditioner inside your shirt? Sony hopes so.

  • New York: Scientists hail 'stunning' results that show areas of the city may have reached 68% immunity.

  • England: They haven’t roamed the country for thousands of years, but bison are poised to return to English woodland next summer.

  • Nigeria: A group of the world's rarest great apes have been caught on camera with their young for the first time, raising hopes that the endangered sub-species is successfully reproducing. The animals were once thought to be extinct in Nigeria but there are now thought to be 300 Cross River gorillas in the wild.
