Celestial commented on Gamification and Rewards for Recycling

I like the idea of making recycling into a game. I thought of something similar...have you ever seen the Monopoly game at Safeway grocery stores in America? Every time you shop you get a certain number of monopoly point cards that you take home and stick on a paper "game board" and you can win prizes (cash to spend in the grocery store, kitchen appliances, etc.) as you accumulate certain point cards. The same game could be played by exchanging various small format plastics (sachets, bottle caps, etc.) at various establishments for prizes....

Celestial commented on Interviewing a Zero waste mother

Great information here, thanks for sharing. It's interesting to think about the different ways in which people are motivated to create change in their lives, particularly when thinking about going zero waste (which is mostly getting away from plastic!). It looks like your cousin's experience really empowered her in a myriad of ways, and demonstrated just how complicated it can be finding a simple solution to this plastic challenge.
