Some really innovative stuff (in a video format)- http://planetgreen.discovery.com/videos/g-word-upcycling.html
For the restless souls, here is what its about- 🙂 The video is about a new concept called ‘Upcycling’. A team collects hard plastic bags such as the ones in which chips, lays, etc are sold. They clean the collected bags in and out thereby removing any food particles, stitch the them into one big bag and sell it to super-markets (i guess!)
Advantages – plastic is not disposed into the environment!! better than recycling the plastic coz, the recycling process is energy intensive.
I am wondering why this should n’t be done in India! 🙂
