The Solutions To Plastic Pollution

The Solutions To Plastic Pollution

Green Age

Plastic is one of the biggest issues facing us as a species. Globally, eight million tonnes of plastic enters the ocean each year – that’s

Delicious packaging, of course. The US agricultural team has recently developed an alternative to plastic packaging made from milk proteins. While probably not the most delicious thing you’re likely to eat, the fact that it’s biodegradable is a huge step forward in the fight against plastic pollution. The next step will be looking for solutions that eliminate the need for dairy products, since cattle produce so much methane. Plastic Roads We first wrote about roads a couple of years back – you can read the full article here. Since then the concept has continued to grow, encouraged by local councils and Scottish innovator, MacRebur. The process of recycling plastic for road surfaces involves making plastic pellets which are then melted into an asphalt mix (bitumen, plastic, sand, gravel, etc.), which is then used for the road surface. Zero Carbon Air Conditioning Given the glorious weather of the UK, we don’t often have to worry much about the amount of energy used by air conditioning systems, but let us tell you – it’s a lot. What does plastic recycling have to do with that? Just ask the guys behind Eco Cooler. They created a very simple product based on using plastic bottles mounted on a perforated board, testing it in Bangladesh. The beauty of the concept is that it can be recreated practically anywhere, with readily available waste materials. Cool without using unnecessary energy, and reduce plastic pollution in our oceans. Think we missed something? Do you have a different opinion? Comment below to get your voice heard… The post The Solutions To Plastic Pollution appeared first on TheGreenAge.'>
