I am following this start up who consider themselves as "socialpreneurs" for a while. Great story and very inspiring. A reminder that it always starts with the small things and everyone can do their bit. They are in Japan but I think this concept can be easily spread or adapted in other countries.

P.s.: I wasn't sure about the category - can we add another section "sustainability"? I thought that would be most befitting, for now I put it under "climate"

Excellent video Rene and the climate category is fine for the idea as plastic pollution is a climate issue. The categories overlap. You can also search ideas on IdeaSpies by word eg plastic or sustainability.

Great Initiative - especially when we might drown in plastics before we solve the climate crisis. Also check out a similar program in Australia:
