PVR stands for plastic vs reusables. The reusable cup has a living plant in it whilst the reusable straw has light on it showing that this is the cup and the straw that need to be used. 16 billion disposable coffee cups are used every year. These are coated with plastic to laminate the inside and they have plastic lids which just adds insult to injury!

Plastic that has been collected from the sea and a shell n’ rock recycling symbol. In other words, recycle plastic, don’t throw it in the sea. As a solution to what we are seeing in the photo, Australians found a very interesting way to save water from plastic pollution. It consists of a net (not the one shown on the photo) placed on the outlet of a drainage pipe that helps to capture plastic and keep the environment protected from contamination. The city authorities started by installing two nets and were surprised by the result, as their new filtration system managed to catch over 800 pounds of garbage within some weeks. The nets costed approximately 10,000 dollars each, but the new filtration system proves that small things matter. Focusing on them can have a significant and positive impact on our environment and humanity in general.
