Plastic stopper

A simple but effective device is now being trialled in a canal in Amsterdam. A pipe in the water blows bubbles, which stop plastic from flowing downstream, and pushes it to the side. There, it can be collected, saving fish and other animals.

This is an excellent band aid, cheaper and simpler than many others I’ve seen.

Of course, not throwing the rubbish away in the first place is better.

Refusing to buy it is better still.

And not making it… Hey, that’s the real solution!
