Land Rover BAR install the UK's first Seabin
Land Rover BAR have partnered with Seabin Pty to install the UK's first Seabin on the pontoon of the team's base in Portsmouth. The Seabin, an automated rubbish collection device, will sit alongside 1,000 oysters housed in protected cages on the dock, introduced as part of a scientific project and launched in 2015.
Turning the plastic tide
The Isle of Wight Council is working with volunteers and recycling company, TerraCycle, to recycle rigid plastic from Island beaches. Thanks to an innovative project, the waste collected from beaches on the Island is now being given a second life in the form of shampoo bottles made from up to 25 per cent recycled beach plastic; as well as recycled benches, waste bins and watering cans.
