Not alone, Plast is one of many companies that are utilizing excess plastic. ByFusion turns plastic waste into concrete-like building blocks called ByBlocks that have already proven reliable in building schools and lifeguard towers, with the hope of greater applications to come. NextWave, an initiative by the computer company Dell, has been collecting plastic in Indonesia and transforming it into electronic packaging.
Creative problem solving and efforts from companies and programs like these are crucial in the fight against climate change. It is inspiring to see organizations working to minimize our plastic footprint in ways that simultaneously contribute to society.
