Are we addicted to plastics?
Looking across the table at lunch today, I noticed depressingly that pretty much everything we had on the table was packaged in plastics. It amazes me often how hard it is to use less of this in daily life. And clearly today was a very bad day for Plastic Free Tuesday.
The Netherlands online in China
Today is also the day that a new online platform was launched in China, Helanonline.cn, which brings news and developments from the Netherlands to China. The platform focuses specifically on innovation, sustainability and CSR.
My first article is now online for this platform: talking about how to solve that plastic addiction. In the article I share best practices of Dutch business who look at this problem differently, and I share examples from for example G-Star, Starsock, Boyan Slat and Plastic Whale. Only in Chinese though.
