Amocean's insight:

Der World Plastic Coucil - ein internationaler Rat aus Firmen der Plastikbranche, gegründet 2013) unterstützt die Entscheidungen des G7 Gipfels in Elmau. Vor allem sind sie glücklich darüber, dass ihr Projekt "Clean Sweep" honoriert wurde - ein Projekt zum besseren Management von Kunststoffgranulat. Kunststoffgranulat gelangt leicht in die Umwelt, wenn nicht vorsichtig damit umgegangen wird - eine weitere Quelle der Plastikverschmutzung.

A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) | Amocean OceanScoops | Scoop.it
Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
