It is not a secret that plastic pollution and waste is a danger for many species. Many animals die, because they mistake plastic for food, but also humans are endangered daily, because of plastic waste. There is microplastic in many food articles and plastic in the ocean has created what we often call islands of waste or trash islands.
What about some good news? There is an interesting system in Rome. You can exchange plastic bottles for train tickets. Once you put your plastic bottles in the vending machine the money is automatically transferred to your phone.
When will there be such machines in Graz? We need that too! Tick, tock time is running.
