A plastic-free supermarket aisle

Supermarket chain Ekoplaza has piloted a “world first” plastic-free supermarket aisle in Amsterdam, prompting calls from campaigners for retailers to roll them out in more places. Goods within the aisle will carry the Plastic Free Mark, a label introduced by A Plastic Planet to help shoppers easily identify products that are completely free of plastic packaging. Plastic-free aisles are seen as an innovative way of testing the compostable biomaterials that offer a more environmentally friendly alternative to plastic packaging. www.inkl.com/glance/news/netherlands-opens-world-s-first-plastic-free-supermarket-aisle-as-uk-urged-to-follow-example?

97% of plastic bottles recycled

An industry-led scheme in Norway is credited with increasing plastic bottle recycling levels to 97 per cent. Consumers pay a small additional charge on each bottle they buy. When the bottle is returned either to the shop or a recycling machine, the deposit is refunded. Shops are given a small handling fee for taking the returned bottles. Recycling machines – often found in supermarkets – read the barcodes of the bottles and usually offer customers vouchers for the shop, or the option of making a charitable donation. www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-plastic-bottle-recycling-system-norway-adopt-ocean-pollution-latest-news-a8198761.html

Floating buildings made of plastic bottles that withstand storms

598E5484-3C3B-4941-BB19-66C2A0F63AE6

Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world when it comes to flooding, storms, and impact from sea level rise. An Amsterdam-based architecture firm called Waterstudio has come up with one possible solution: floating structures that can withstand storms made from thousands of discarded plastic bottles. http://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/11/these-floating-buildings-are-made-from-thousands-of-plastic-bottles

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?

Light from a plastic bottle

596e6f341500006303bfe3b3

Liter of Light, a project of the Philippines-based nonprofit MyShelter Foundation, provides light to poor households around the world with limited or no access to electricity ― by collecting plastic bottles, filling them with water and bleach, and sticking them into roofs. The bleach-filled bottles then refract the light from outdoors into the house, lighting up much like a lightbulb. To make the bottles work at night a small LED lightbulb is slipped into the bottle, which in turn is hooked up to a mini-solar panel. http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/plastic-bottles-electricity_us_596e64f4e4b0000eb1968bb5
