30 Days Without Single-Use Plastics | One Small Step | NowThis
In 2015 alone, people generated 300 million tons of plastic waste, and since then the number has only gone up. Here's what happened when we tried to go a full month without single-use plastics. » Subscribe to NowThis Future: https://go.nowth.is/Future_Subscribe California is the only state that has banned the use of plastic bags while nine other states have banned plastic bag bans. Think about all the plastic pollution coming from plastic containers, plastic straws, plastic utensils like forks, spoons, and knives, and other plastic wraps and bags that people use just one time before they end up in the trash, on our streets, or in the ocean. There are several legitimate economical and ecological reasons to cut down on excessive plastic use, and NowThis' Lucy Biggers is here to tell you more. Watch as Lucy Biggers takes up the challenge to go one month without single-use plastic in an effort to combat plastic pollution and climate change. Along the way, Lucy will also share a few tips on how you can fight plastic pollution too, and just maybe (hopefully) inspire you to take the 30-day plastic free challenge too. #PlasticBan #Environment #OneSmallStep Connect with NowThis » Subscribe to NowThis News: http://go.nowth.is/News_Subscribe » Like us on Facebook: http://go.nowth.is/News_Facebook » Tweet us on Twitter: http://go.nowth.is/News_Twitter » Follow us on Instagram: http://go.nowth.is/News_Instagram » Find us on Snapchat Discover: http://go.nowth.is/News_Snapchat What happens to everything we use after we throw it away?

Canada banning single-use plastics by the end of 2021
The federal government is proposing to ban single-use plastics by the end of 2021, in an effort to reduce plastic waste. Mike Le Couteur explains why some businesses - and Alberta's government - are concerned, and whether this plan will make a difference.

Glass Recycling - Recycling to New Bottles
Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity - something few food and beverage packaging options can claim. Glass Facts: Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity – something no other food and beverage packaging option can claim. Glass is made from readily-available domestic materials, such as sand, soda ash, limestone and “cullet,” the industry term for furnace-ready scrap glass. The only material used in greater volumes than cullet is sand. These materials are mixed, or “batched,” heated to a temperature of 2600 to 2800 degrees Fahrenheit and molded into the desired shape. Recycled glass is substituted for up to 95% of raw materials. Manufacturers benefit from recycling in several ways: Recycled glass reduces emissions and consumption of raw materials, extends the life of plant equipment, such as furnaces, and saves energy. Recycled glass containers are always needed because glass manufacturers require high-quality recycled container glass to meet market demands for new glass containers. Cullet is always part of the recipe for glass, and the more that is used, the greater the decrease in energy used in the furnace. This makes using cullet profitable in the long run, lowering costs for glass container manufacturers—and benefiting the environment. Glass containers for food and beverages are 100% recyclable, but not with other types of glass. Other kinds of glass, like windows, ovenware, Pyrex, crystal, etc. are manufactured through a different process. If these materials are introduced into the glass container manufacturing process, they can cause production problems and defective containers. Furnace-ready cullet must also be free of contaminants such as metals, ceramics, gravel, stones, etc. Color sorting makes a difference, too. Glass manufacturers are limited in the amount of mixed color-cullet (called "3 mix") they can use to manufacture new containers. Separating recycled container glass by color allows the industry to ensure that new bottles match the color standards required by glass container customers. Some recycled glass containers are not able to be used in the manufacture of new glass bottles and jars or to make fiberglass. This may be because there is too much contamination or the recycled glass pieces are too small to meet manufacturing specifications. Or, it may be that there is not a nearby market for bottle-to-bottle recycling. This recovered glass is then used for non-container glass products. These "secondary" uses for recycled container glass can include tile, filtration, sand blasting, concrete pavements and parking lots. The recycling approach that the industry favors is any recycling program that results in contaminant-free recycled glass. This helps ensure that these materials are recycled into new glass containers. While curbside collection of glass recyclables can generate high participation and large amounts of recyclables, drop-off and commercial collection programs tend to yield higher quality recovered container glass.

Recycling Empty Plastic Bottles
Ever wonder what happens to your empty plastic bottles after you put them in the recycling bin? Watch this cool video to see how empty bottles are turned into other products. The guy in this video says his recycling factory is hungry for empty bottles, so we all need to recycle more and promote recycling! Plus, in case you haven't heard, it takes much less energy to make products from recycled material rather than using virgin materials.
