Re: Environmental concerns

When they bring you a drink here in Turkey with a straw refuse it. 'Hayir, bardak getirir misiniz?' (no, could you bring a glass?)

Re: Environmental concerns

Is there no limit to what this ijit will do to be seen to make changes? As he found with Obama care it is a lot easier to destroy something than create it:-

The Trump administration has completed its plan to roll back major offshore-drilling safety regulations that were put in place after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster in 2010 that killed 11 people and caused the worst oil spill in US history.

Re: Environmental concerns

Ukrainian edible carrier bag wins award

Ukrainian scientists have invented an eco-friendly plastic bag that decomposes quickly, does not pollute the environment, and what's more you can eat it once it's worn out.

Dr Dmytro Bidyuk and his colleagues discovered the material as a by-product of combining natural proteins and starches in their laboratory at the National Agrarian University in Sumy in north-eastern Ukraine, the local Depo.Sumy news site reports.

They have moulded cups, drinking straws and bags from seaweed and a starch derived from red algae. These would otherwise be made from disposable plastic, which can take hundreds of years to decompose.

It seems a great idea but I’m wondering what they taste like

Re: Environmental concerns

All drinks containers in Turkey will be covered by a deposit return scheme by 2023,

Great but why do we have to wait till 2023? Sounds like something announced for the election but no need for fast action. Other countries have already implemented this so their system could be used. No real need for a major delay. meanwhile the plastic just jeeps flowing.

Re: Environmental concerns

Now here is a real initiative, let's hope it comes to fruition:-
Turkey has laid the groundwork to build a zero-waste town in a bid to fight environmental pollution.

Officials are analyzing 951 districts in Turkey’s 81 provinces to find the most suitable town for the zero-waste project.

Re: Environmental concerns

My generation trashed the planet. So I salute the children striking back

“The Youth Strike 4 Climate gives me more hope than I have felt in 30 years of campaigning. Before this week, I believed it was all over. I thought, given the indifference and hostility of those who govern us, and the passivity of most of my generation, that climate breakdown and ecological collapse were inevitable. Now, for the first time in years, I think we can turn them around.

My generation and the generations that went before have failed you. We failed to grasp the basic premise of intergenerational justice: that you cannot apply discount rates to human life. In other words, the life of someone who has not been born will be of no less value than the life of someone who already exists. We have lived as if your lives had no importance, as if any resource we encountered was ours and ours alone to use as we wished, regardless of the impact on future generations. In doing so, we created a cannibal economy: we ate your future to satisfy our greed…

Every day at home, we tell you that if you make a mess you should clear it up. We tell you that you should take responsibility for your own lives. But we have failed to apply these principles to ourselves. We walk away from the mess we have made, in the hope that you might clear it up...”
