Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink (part 2)

In rural Finland there are over a thousand water cooperatives serving farm businesses and villages. Whilst licensed by the government and allotted a limit to the amount of water they can extract, the cooperatives have complete control over price. This means they can offer favourable rates to their members because their decision is not influenced by fluctuations of the market. The Finnish water cooperatives also have the network benefits of other partnering with other regional associations. If for instance the water quality in one area is not sufficient, due to extenuating natural circumstances, the cooperative may buy water from a neighbouring cooperative-owned water network, thus ensuring continued low prices and supply dependency.

When it comes to recycling, humanity needs to think big

When someone asks you to think about 'what can we recycle?' you may come up with many answers straight away. Plastic bags, cans, paper, different types of plastic; there are so many things that we are reminded to recycle every day. The facilities for them are slowly improving year by year. In the UK, several major supermarkets now charge a nominal amount for plastic bags in order to get customers to consider if they need them, and a lot of local areas have set up specific household and community recycling bins. Yet, considering how technology is advancing in terms of what we can recycle, we need to broaden our minds a bit more to make that a reality. Why only keep to the little things when modern technology gives us the capability to think so much bigger?

 

Recently the methods of recycling have expanded to include more modern technology. For example, mobile phones are now commonly recycled, with several companies offering cash in exchange for them. Ink cartridges can be recycled or refilled, cutting down dramatically on the waste from printers.
