Think going waste-free when traveling is too hard? Tell that to the couple who built a solar-powered car from recycled plastic and drove it to the South Pole.
It seems like every second article on my
news feed right now is about single-use plastic. And with good reason. By 2050,
plastic in the oceans will outweigh fish unless we take drastic action.
In fact, the focus on single-use plastic is so prominent that Collins Dictionary named ‘single-use’ its word of the year in 2018. And the European Union recently voted to ban single-use plastics by 2021. In general, the world seems to be shifting away from a philosophy of consume, consume, consume, and towards one of reduce, reuse, and recycle instead.

entirely can be tricky at the best of times—let alone when traveling through
developing nations or in more remote parts of the world.
