Electrolux is now embarking on a quest. We are going to collect plastic debris from the oceans, and from it, produce a collection of vacuum cleaners -- from the sea. Join us on: http://www.electrolux.com/vacfromthesea

The Japanese company Blest has developed one of the smallest and safest oil-to-plastic conversion machines out on the market today. It's founder and CEO, Akinori Ito is passionate about using this machine to change the way people around the world think about their plastic trash. From solving our landfill and garbage disposal issues to reducing our oil dependency on the Middle East, his machine may one day be in every household across Japan.
While holding up a bag of trash, he states, "It's a waste to throw away, isn't it? This is a treasure."

Rishi saar - Spiral Island 2

Urmet @ 14.09.2010 09:01 | Registreerunud: 17.04.2003

Härra "Rishi" Sowa, kellest eelpoolgi juttu, selgitab natuke oma plastikpudelitest tehtud saare põhimõtteid.

Esimesel saare ehitas mees 300 000 plastpudelist ja elas ta seal 1998 kuni 2005 aastani, mil orkaan Emily selle hävitas. Nüüdeks on valminud uus ja veelgi parem plastiksaar. Mees loksub Mehhikos Isla Mujeres'e saarel väikeses laguunis tormituulte eest kaitstuna head elu nautides. Loomulikult ei saa saar kunagi valmis vaid Rishi kavatseb seda edasi tuunida kuni jaksu jätkub.

Valminud on ka väike lehekülg, mis abistab ja teeb selgitustööd plastsaarte teemal.

Panen kaasa ka saare foto ja projekti:

Plastpudelitest katuselaastud

Raul @ 05.01.2011 11:56 | Registreerunud: 01.04.2003

Plastpudelid teerulliga lapikuks ja väärt katuselaast ongi olemas.

What do you get when you put 7000 plastic bottles, 60 old sign posts, 350 metres of plastic water piping, 5 sheets of old building site hoarding, 2 old scaffold planks and the sweat of over 180 volunteers together? This awesome Fizzy Bottle Hut! At first glance, the recycled structure might look like it has a colorful, shingled roof but upon closer inspection, you can see that it's actually made up of thousands of flattened soda and water bottles.

TieTek™ composite ties are 85% recycled material. Each mile of TieTek track uses approximately 2 million plastic bottles, 9 million plastic bags and 10,000 scrapped vehicle tires instead of consuming over 750 trees.

PermaTieTM engineered ties are made exclusively with quality, UV protected, recycled plastics and a common mineral filler; no other miscellaneous fillers or extraneous ingredients.

According to the plastics division of the American Chemistry Council, "the railroad ties market is huge since each tie requires 200 pounds of plastic — equaling 1,200 bottles."

David de Rothschild is on a mission. Alarmed by the devastating impact of plastic pollution in the ocean, the eco-adventurer built the Plastiki, a boat made from 12,000 plastic bottles. In it, he and his crew of nautical nomads sail halfway around the world to alert the public about this ecological crisis and the need to reuse discarded plastics.

via inhabitat:

"Industrial engineer Federico Blanc had a dream to float down Argentina’s gorgeous Parana River on a recycled kayak, and his vision recently came to fruition! Blanc collected dozens of plastic soda bottles and glued them together to create his fantastic blue kayak. Simple, strong and eco-friendly, this boat can carry up to 2 people plus a cooler for when the rafters get hungry."
