Single use plastic containers and cutlery to be phased out

IMG_1967

The Hobart City Council in Tasmania has agreed to draft legislation that would phase out single-use plastic containers and cutlery by 2020. Instead of using plastic containers for home delivery and takeout, restaurants in the city of 220,000 would have to use ones made from cardboard, cornstarch or bamboo that could be composted. The move follows Tasmania’s ban on thin plastic bags in 2013. (Thicker retail bags are still allowed.) https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/09/world/australia/plastic-tasmania-hobart.html?

A water capsule you can drink

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 10.32.28 PM

Plastic bottles make it easy to transport water, but it takes energy to make the bottles. When you’re done with your drink, it takes more energy to unmake the bottle, as plastics won’t fully degrade on their own. Now a startup called Skipping Rock Labs thinks we can just skip plastic bottles entirely. It has developed a capsule called “Ooho!” for transporting water that is not only biodegradable, it’s edible. https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/247672-seaweed-based-water-pouch-aims-end-need-plastic-bottles
