Industries are waking up to the fact that the Earth is in mortal danger -- and that money can be made addressing the challenges posed by climate change, extreme weather, pollution and waste.
Plastic waste is a big problem. Turning it into new plastic sounds like the obvious solution, but that's trickier than you think. Now two young entrepreneurs are trying a new kind of recycling that could do the job.
Big companies including Coca-Cola and Danone have signed a new global commitment to tackle the plastic waste problem. Mere greenwashing, or can such pledges make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution?
Six months ahead of the European elections, Germany's Green Party has formally adopted its manifesto. It plans to demand a unified European asylum law and campaign for taxes on tech giants and Europe's worst polluters.
Germany is hailed worldwide as a recycling champion. But like many European countries, it actually recycles a lot less plastic packaging waste than commonly understood — with dire consequences for the environment.
