WASTE EXPRESS

Good Morning, 

Today we will talk about the increase need for water to beat the scorching heat and in order to buy one bottle of water, we need to spend around 20rupees.Buying such bottles might not be a problem for us but it carries other two major problems first being the bottle is plastic made which when disposed off can take a lot of time to degrade and due to lack of proper recycling strategies, it ends up in landfills majorly and second being the water available in these bottles sometimes are beyond our drinking capacity therefore such water end up getting wasted which is also a major problem in this freshwater deficient world.

What if these bottles are replaced by something more worthy!

Thanks to skipping rocks lab which has created a little but advanced technology solving all our problems as well as of environment.

These are little “bubble pods” which are smaller in quantity but can fill our thirst and also are also ecofriendly and biodegradable in nature.

The introduction of these bubble pods has been given in the video given below-

These pods are not only available for drinking purpose but can also be used to replace our glass bottles used to store different sauces and other liquid materials.

Such innovations would be our future liquid storing material.

WASTE EXPRESS

Welcome to miraculous Eco news once again,

In today’s time the plastic has become the heart and soul in every work but most importantly it is also used majorly for packaging. Even after banning by the government, its usage has not been declined and has contributed to an increase in the garbage.

Thanks to the American Chemistry Society, there has been a development of new material used for packaging which is made up of milk protein.

 Process of this material is being shown in the following video-

The protein-based films are powerful oxygen blockers that help prevent food spoilage. When used in packaging, they could prevent food waste during distribution along the food chain,” says research leader Peggy Tomasula, D.Sc.

And spoiled food is just one issue. Current food packaging is mainly petroleum-based, which is not sustainable. It also does not degrade, creating tons of plastic waste that sits in landfills for years.

Development of this type of packaging material can end the plastic packaging trend and will usher new era which will be biodegradable and ecofriendly in nature.
