I was thinking about this idea last night, and thought that this would be great for large outdoor events, concerts, sporting events or city parades, and even fun runs and marathons.
All of these event leave tons of disposable paper cups, plates and plastic bottles, that need to be cleaned up, and disposed of in landfill.
If everyone had cups, plates and bottles, they could eat, or that were totally biodegradable, there would be none of the waste, and mess, to clean up after the event.
I would love to see all takeaway food containers be made from edible, or totally biodegradable materials. Coffee cups, carry bags, etc. We recently had a McDonalds built in our town, and the rubbish it generates is disgusting. Personally I think these places should be banned, but that is not going to happen any time soon, but we can at least stop the littering of our town, from the wasteful packaging, these places generate.
I would love to see composters in parks, on streets, rather than rubbish bins, which just transfer the problem to a landfill.
In the words of John Lennon, "you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one, I hope some day you will join us, and the world will be as one", says it all really :)
