Don’t you just Love The Nature of Nature?! Wish we had discovered this little fella about a 150 years ago! Biochemistry professor Scott Strobel, adventured to the jungles of Ecuador. Where his team discovered The Fungi, Pestalotiopsis microspora. This Fungi is the first Fungi ever recorded discovered that can survive on a steady diet of polyurethane alone and…….do it in an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment that is close to the condition at the bottom of a landfill.
This is The Greatest waste issue News we have Learned about in a long time! Go Mother Earth!
Part of Yale University’s Rainforest Expedition and Laboratory,
Here is the Fella who apparently invented polyurethane, well, one of the Fathers of Modern Plastic anyway – Alexander Parkes….and what a string of a mess since then.
Buying items that do not have plastic packaging is a great start if you are new at being friendly to Mother Earth and Her inhabitants. And recycling all else is good too. When at the grocery store, bring your own cloth / cotton grocery bag and say goodbye to the other. Some stores now offer biodegradable shopping carriers, and kitchen refuse. You can buy them at Sobey’s outlets, Pharmasave, Zellers, and Thrifty Foods, but the Best buy is at The Soap Exchange where you can buy all kinds of other goodies too! http://www.victoriasoapexchange.com/products/garbage-bags
We ask you to purchase biodegradable only, and clean up our Oceans, Rivers and Lands.
