Plastic transition, what exactly is that?
We are living in the plastic age, this stuff that has brought so many advances, our health care, for example, wouldn’t be the same today without plastic. But as we all know it has also brought so much harm to our world. Plastic transition is about finding ways to reduce our dependence on plastic, to relearn how to use natural materials, and to look after the plastic that comes into our hands so it does not do any more harm.
Not an easy job, but being part of the Global Ecobrick Alliance, connecting us to communities who are also on the transitioning path, we can learn, teach and share, and most importantly work towards finding answers.
The next stage of this work here in the UK is to build upon the earth and ecobrick builds that have started to happen. Having somewhere to create earth buildings that sequester plastic/CO2 and are useful to us is an important part of our work, and will allow people to learn how to make plastic they can’t avoid to be useful within their homes and communities.
To do that we need somewhere to act as a demonstration model of the hows.
And that is what this series of posts are about.
Sharing our working ethos, so you can understand the why, to inspire you to be part of that journey.
This picture is the ninth page of our working ethos, plastic transition – you can read the rest on our website ( the open source development of the website is part of bringing community to work together ) www.newforestaquaponics.com
We also have a survey which we would love to get your opinions on how much support we will have for a democratic (one member one vote) share offer to be part of our regenerative farm community.
Please do fill in the survey – it is really important we can show we have the support to get to the next stage. follow the link or use the QR code
