Seen on a Sunday

Nearly 11 years ago – Sunday August 14th 2011 to be precise

Was the first time I saw THIS

Turned into
THIS

Then just one year later – Sunday August 26th 2012
Near the old Cafe on Flagstaff Hill Bowen
Far North Queensland

More of the Whitsunday’s Recycling Scheme

Two different styles of the bench this time – the simple one above and this one with formed back and small table structure in front.  Perfect place for your cool drink while taking in the view



Did you know

The energy saved by recycling one plastic drink bottle will power a computer for 25 minutes.

  1. This is just so cool! I wish more plastic could go into useful products instead of in landfills or the ocean. Our beaches are littered with them.

    1. I wonder if Hawaii has a similar scheme but it’s not publicised. Often it’s economically unviable for some schemes to work.
      We had/have redeemable deposits on plastic water bottles- lots of children (and hard up adults) collect them which helps with some of the litter.

  2. How I wish more recycling was done. It’s a long process. We have some plants near us that use recycled plastic.

  3. Our marina pontoon decking was made of recycled plastic (central London) the only drawback was accummulation of static electricity, which would zap you when you touched hand rails and boats. It was really bad if you wheeled a bike down to your boat.

    1. We have to keep at it – encourage not get annoyed when it doesn’t happen. It’s great when industry makes little promos like the ones featured on the site – https://www.awe.gov.au/environment/protection/waste/sustainable-procurement/recycled-content-in-use?gclid=CjwKCAjw_tWRBhAwEiwALxFPockpR7SP0GFzf10Em7G3PeFGEXW_JlC5Yxr_uSU-hdh1bKAYl546ABoCfnkQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds#transcript_5) making the public aware of what ‘can’ happen to recycled plastic and other waste.
