Fun sustainability facts for the UAE
- The UAE has a bee-keeping association. They’re based out of Sustainable City
- A few restaurants in the UAE are banding together and stopping the use of straws and single use plastic in their outlets. One of them is The Noodle House, where my family and I went in November and asked to not be given straws (no, I’m not taking credit, but isn’t that a wonderful coincidence?)
- The UAE has ordered Seabins, receptacles that help filter plastic out of the ocean
- Bamboo brushes are available in the UAE, though, as with most ‘alternative’ options, they are more expensive than the conventional plastic option.
Happy 30th to R who always uses her voice in defence of those who need it. I hope you’re using the straw I ‘gave’ you!
