We are delighted to have been featured twice on Daily Mail Online in discussions regarding the severity of plastic waste and the innovative concepts and ideas people are implementing to overcome it.
The first article, titled ‘Turning waste into bioplastics, Mexico strikes green gold’ , spoke about the sheer scope of plastic pollution and what individuals and corperation’s are doing to make the world more eco-friendly:
“Plastic production is expected to double over the next 20 years, compounding worries over the 8 million to 15 million tonnes of plastic the United Nations says are already being dumped into the ocean each year.
“The whole world is changing – people are starting to ask for this,” said Scott Munguia, founder of Mexican company BIOFASE. The main obstacle is the cost of producing bioplastics, he noted.”
The second article listed some of today’s most creative eco-friendly options. With the ever-growing presence of plastic pollution in the media, people really are going the extra mile to do their bit for our planet:
“One beachside cafe asks customers to fill up their buckets with litter to receive a free hot drink and in return help clean up rubbish to be recycled.”
“One Mexican company has created single-use cutlery and straws made out of avocado seeds that biodegrades in 240 days and leaves zero plastic behind.”
