Plastics on the beach. Sure we did not get too close for all the COVID reasons, but was a lovely walk down the beach with my friend Kay to pick up a few plastics coming in from the ocean. Our usual bag of rubbish then a coffee on a beautiful Autumn morning - nice. 2 people were involved in the activity
Would you laugh at this? I'm out for breakfast - walking to my table with a coffee in hand - a TV to my left catches my eye - I miss the door by a meter and walk smack into the glass wall - that is my coffee dripping down the wall. At first the other patrons were worried I was hurt, but seeing I was OK the laughter was quite significant - as were the very funny quips as they were walking past me when leaving. Oh dear!
Sure zero plastic consumed is the ultimate goal, but this is a good stepping stone innovation in these situations. With non plastic ties you can use as well. Oh and the vegetable waste in the bag was in the compostable bin - I think I remember that correctly.
Bummer, last week I spoke on Economic Development NZ conference and this wonderful leader was to be speak a couple of hours before me and I was hoping for a coffee to talk about plastics (I had the right connection to tee it up), but she had to pull out of the event.

Speaking today on a conference in the Bay of Islands NZ - last night had the privilege of being in a ceremony here in this building on the spot where the Treaty of Waiting was signed 180 years ago. It was special to give a nod to that momentous piece of history.
