Plastic waste is something that our world has in abundance, and howsoever hard we try, the heap of waste just keeps getting bigger. Recycling, reuse and thinking smart may be our way out of this mess, as numerous enterprising souls have demonstrated. The latest example comes from Welsh company Vertech Limited who used up 50 tons of plastic waste to create a 90 feet long bridge.
It is not something they just put together for display. The thermoplastic bridge is sturdy enough to allow transport of heavy duty vehicles so it really is useful. The bridge has been put across the river Tweed at Easter Dawyck in Peeblesshire and forms part of the historic John Buchan Way.
