Check out the sticker. How long have cigarette but bins been doubling up as chewing gum bins?
I once did a waste’o'matic on chewing gum.
Every week in Australia we throw out around 6m3 (one large skip) of used chewing gum! Maultiply that by fifty two and that’s a lot of sticky s#@t!!
They say necessity is the mother of all invention. I agree and believe wholeheartedly.
Take a look at this little beauty I stumbled across yesterday. Expect to see more of these wonderful machines as oil becomes more scarce and roads become more clogged.
This one has what looks like a generator stuck to the pack rack and a voltage reader gaffered to the frame. I love it! Would have liked to have met the owner but I reckon he was inside the library.
For ages now I’ve been talking about using packaging to convey educational messages related to the environment (or more specifically waste).
This is the bag my meat came in from the butcher the other day. I was both surprised and impressed to find that one entire side of the bag was dedicated to environmental messaging – let’s hope the messages are read!
I would encourage you all to keep an eye out for environmental messaging on product packaging. Send me photos of some good (and bad) examples!!
