And luxury watches? Try Tom Ford’s idea. For every 100 Ocean Plastic Timepieces, 49 pounds of plastic are removed from the ocean.
And a Plastic Innovation prize is available in conjunction with 52HZ from Lonely Whale, the ocean conservancy. The person to invent a scaleable version of the plastic bag (trillions of pounds are dumped into the fishes’ house each year) —
The Tom Ford Plastic Innovation Prize in partnership with 52HZ from the ocean conservation group Lonely Whale. $1 million will be awarded and the winning ideas will both help the environment and be scalable and ready to market by 2025.
Good luck to us all….
