I remember seeing those worktops and thinking this is the future, this is recycling at its best. But the idea hasn't been taken up mainstream, you can buy it but it's a bespoke process. If it was available in our local hardware stores perhaps more people would choose it. The rubber flooring was ideal for hard-wearing areas and has since been adapted for play areas in parks. One use plastics are one of the main recycling problems today. My local authority will only take plastic bottles and cans, no yoghurt pots, spread tubs, meat/ fruit trays or wrappers. Should we have glass yoghurt pots, should buttery spread be purchased frozen in a block wrapped in paper and you drop in into a container when you get home? Have you seen the YouTube video about making roads out of plastic? Google 'Can plastic Roads Help Save the Planet?' Its a BBC short vide but it makes excellent viewing.
How do we solve this huge problem? How would you solve it, any ideas? Bye for now. Tx
