Norway Recycles 97%!

Hi Everyone...

Check this article out on how Norway is getting 97% of their plastic bottles recycled!!! I remember when I was a kid we would bring back glass bottles for a deposit refund. I know of one dairy company that does it now. This link also has a AWESOME 9 min video on other birds which are dying due to plastics and a researcher talking about POP chemicals.

Do you wear disposable contact lenses? Do you flush them in the toilet or throw them down the drain? If you do they turn into microplastics which are harming the environment! Throw them in the trash instead! Check out this article for more details.

Plastic Recycling Machine for Home

Hi Everyone...

Well this is pretty cool. It really just looks like a shredder that can handle plastic but then you need other machines to melt it and shape & form to what you might like to make. Overall, it does look like a great idea to create new things with recycled plastic and then if they became a problem you just recycle them again. :-) It could give many people a new business and if we had our society (us, restaurants, tiles for floors etc) using recycled plastic it could help with our plastic problem.
