Yvette commented on Plastic Zero - Using a Shape Memory Polymer (SMP)

I think this material can also be used for various things like plastic parts or even toys. Once it's discarded then it can be remade into something else staying true to the Circular Economy principle.

Yvette commented on Paper straws

I think aside from price, it could be the quality of the straw as well since it's paper it tends to lose its purpose once it's submerged in the water. Another is the after taste, I've had feedback from people who hate paper straws because it tastes funny. Quite honestly, most drinks do not require a straw, I myself prefer sipping directly from the cup.

Yvette commented on Wash Your Recyclable Plastics (or Not)

I actually do wash out the plastic products I end up tossing in the recycling bin, I always thought that it would be better to recycle things that are clean. Good to know that it does serve a purpose!
