Girl faces charging bull

IdeaSpiesIMG_0840

On International Women’s Day 2017 State Street Global Advisors issued a strong statement about gender equality and installed a statue of a little girl—fists on hips—in front of the famous charging bull of Wall Street. The money manager, with roughly $2.5 trillion under management, announced it would pressure 3,500 companies worth $30 trillion in market cap to aim for gender parity on their boards. http://fortune.com/2017/03/08/international-womens-day-girl-wall-street-bull/

A paste that transforms deserts into fertile land

Scientists at Chongqing Jiaotong University in China have created a paste that’s made from the same substance found in plant cell walls. It’s made from a sodium carboxymethyl cellulose solution which creates support and protection for plants to grow. When the paste is combined with sand in an arid environment, it’s still able to keep water and nutrients for growth. A project in a northern China desert saw positive results in just six months. Flowers and vegetables were growing in nearly 500 acres of sand with the new technology, which essentially makes the land fertile in an extremely hot climate. http://www.distractify.com/news/2017/09/25/Z1OEAxp/china-researchers-deserts-fertile-land

‘Bags for life’ to save waste

PLC_image_BOH_10p_blog_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqNJjoeBT78QIaYdkJdEY4CnGTJFJS74MYhNY6w3GNbO8 (1)

Tesco is scrapping its 5p single use plastic carrier bags and replacing them with a new 10p Bag for Life made from 94pc recycled plastic. The announcement follows a successful 10-week trial in Aberdeen, Dundee and Norwich, where Tesco found that customers bought significantly fewer bags when only pricer bags were offered. Removing the 5p single-use carrier bags will “significantly reduce the number of bags sold and will therefore help reduce litter and bags sent to landfill,” Tesco said. The single-use carrier bags will cease to be offered in stores from August 28. Money from the new 10p bag, which will be replaced for free if damaged, will go towards funding community projects across Britain. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/08/07/tesco-scraps-5p-shopping-bags-10p-bags-life/

The coolest company in Australia

IMG_9676

Thankyou is the winner of Anthill’s Cool Company Awards 2016. The idea was born out the observation that over 900 million people didn’t have access to safe drinking water on a daily basis, yet the Australian bottled water industry was worth an estimated $600 million a year. The social enterprise started with a bottled water brand and expanded to others. Each product has a unique code that shows you the exact project that it’s assigned to fund, complete with GPS coordinates. www.thankyou.co
