Now that the presidency of Barack Obama has officially ended we want to draw attention to one major success of the Obama-Administration that will come into effect in July 2017. Already in 2015 Obama signed the Microbead-Free Waters Act which prohibits the manufacture and introduction into interstate commerce of rinse-off cosmetics containing intentionally-added plastic microbeads.
At the production site with Surfrider Founder Rainer Uhl at Uhl GmbH! We are excited to have tested our material for the very first time! Everything worked out fine so we will hopefully be updating you with prototypes soon in the new year.
On 30th November we spent a whole day in Bönen with the Bio-Security team to work on our business plan and our goals for 2017. We improved our concept and are now eager to get going!
Thanks to the Bio-Security for that great day!
Last week’s post was about the vast amount of plastic that we use in our everyday lives and it informed about the newest technologies that enable us to avoid conventional plastic. What we didn’t cover was the damage microplastic does.
In the world we live in, plastic products are omnipresent: say, the phone charger you order online, the packaging of the phone charger, even the credit card you use to pay for the phone charger is made from plastic and moreover, the keyboard this text is written with is made from plastic, too. Furthermore, plastic is used to wrap the sandwiches we eat for lunch, we bottle the water we drink every day in plastic and ironically, it is even used to package the bio-vegetables we buy in the Natural Food store next door.
THE PLASTIC REVOLUTION is awarded third price at founders contest!
The last weeks have been raging, as we won the third price at a contest for young startups! In Bönen, we were invited to pitch our business idea and present our progress to investors and local politicians. While we made great contacts and had an unforgettable time, we also won 1000€ and a year coaching by Bio Security Management GmBH!
Yay us – and thank you very much Bio Security!
