Plastic waste is an increasingly growing problem across the globe. It pollutes our ecosystems and threatens biodiversity. Unfortunately, plastic waste has been increasing due to dropping recycling levels. In 2021, plastic waste recycling dropped to 5% in the United States. This is because countries have recently banned the importation of U.S. waste into their own countries, forcing the U.S. to begin to appropriately manage their waste. In an effort to combat this, the zero-waste movement is gaining popularity. One such component of the zero-waste movement is the introduction of “bring-your-own-container” (BYOC) stores. These spaces encourage consumers to purchase refillable products and buy items in bulk to save money and protect the environment.

How Much Wave Energy Is In Our Oceans? New Study Could Help Countries Better Estimate How Much Power Their Waters Carry
The ocean, like a teething toddler, is never still. And both creatures contain shocking amounts of energy. But exactly how much energy surges through our ocean waves is a matter of debate. That uncertainty makes it challenging for countries to weave wave energy into their future climate goals: How can you rely on something you cannot accurately measure?
