Recycling and Climate change…The Good …No!… the Great News…

Yes, you read it right it is not the good BUT the great news today…

If England had a Prime Minister like Jacinda Arden ( New Zealand) I would happily use my proxy vote and vote for her…To me, she is what a prime minister should be…Jacinda Ardern’s landmark climate legislation has passed in New Zealand parliament, with historic cross-party support, 

A heart map held by a hand

It is those words cross-party support…which gladden my heart …Politicians everywhere on important issues should be working together across the parties and we certainly do not see enough of that…

This blog is not political as you know...Jacinda Arden deserved a mention…She was decisive about the TERRIBLE shooting AND guns and plastic got short shift as well…

Germany has unveiled a zero-emissions train…


Ikea…To use mushroom packaging…     That Will Decompose in a Garden Within Weeks


Although not without its critics...Sweden has a state-of-the-art waste collection system with recycling stations located no more than 300 metres from residential areas. There are also pipelines under roads that vacuum garbage which is sent by households to the stations.

The waste collection system helps to get rid of the smell of rubbish from neighbourhoods thanks to the use of underground deposits, it also means the rubbish does not occupy any space at street level.

It also boasts nearly zero percent of waste…a system so successful it is importing waste.

This is good news...Pilot plant to recover rare earths using Hydrogen…

Global Science Award for Removing microplastics from the sea goes to Irish teenager…

Here’s how he does it…

I love how young people are taking an interest and doing something about the world’s problems…Kudos to them…

All of the garbage trucks in Toronto, Canada will soon be powered by the biogas produced from the very trash they collect.

Toronto is set to be one of the first cities in North America to launch such an initiative, thanks to its newly-constructed Dufferin Solid Waste Management Facility.

Starting in March 2020, the city’s fleet of garbage trucks will collect all of the organic waste and food scraps from the Toronto Green Bins and bring them to the facility for processing.

How encouraging is that?

I love that around the world much is going on to minimise rubbish and clean up the world …I do think we all need to take part though and learn just how and what can be recycled as many things are made from a mixture of various types of plastics which then means they need specialist recycling. I am much more aware when I buy something now as to its composition so that in the event it will need recycling at some stage I know where and how…or even if it can be recycled.

Lots of good news today…Please share your good news stories we would love to hear them…xx

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there are now regular columns on my blog this year. It is important that we are mindful of the world we live in…We all need to be aware of our own homes carbon footprints…where does our food come from? How far does it travel…Simple to do but if we all did it…Not only would we support local businesses but reduce our carbon footprint…

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all have a creative week ahead xx

    Yep. There are wonderful people who care. But there are hugely populated countries and whole continents that are focused on other things, like survival. I was reading about the countries that contribute the most to global pollution. It made me really sad.

    In Brisbane the council provide a regular service to collect general rubbish and recycling. Hopefully they might work towards a system for food scraps etc especially in the inner city where composting might not be practical.

      Fingers crossed, Ally as food waste is a big issue…I liked how Sweden have an underground system for their rubbish so it is not stored above ground…Great idea…Maybe other countries should follow the Swedish model …We can hope 🙂 x
