Scientists Say They've Cooked Up an Endlessly Recyclable Plastic

Scientists Say They've Cooked Up an Endlessly Recyclable Plastic | The EcoPlum Daily | Scoop.it
Plastics aren’t recycled nearly as much as we’d like them to be, but a team from Berkeley Lab has developed a method to hopefully make that process easier. In a recently published study, these researches describe a new type of plastic that can be broken down at the molecular level to create new plastic without any deterioration in quality. The goal is to improve the recycling process so that fewer plastics end up in landfills or oceans.

Adidas’ FutureCraft Loop Sneaker Talks a Big Recycling Game

Adidas’ FutureCraft Loop Sneaker Talks a Big Recycling Game | The EcoPlum Daily | Scoop.it
As much as I like sneakers, one problem with the modern running shoe is that after your kicks get worn out, you can’t resole them like you can a nice dress shoe. So inevitably, old sneakers end up getting tossed in the trash where they rot in a landfill somewhere for the next few decades or more. However, with some help from its forward-thinking FutureCraft design studio, Adidas has created the Loop, which includes some important innovations that could help reduce waste from shoe manufacturing, even if it hasn’t magically solved the problem yet.
