Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

Progress with Polystyrene and Plastics

On October 7, Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change presented the next steps in the government’s plan to achieve zero plastic waste by 2030. The plan includes banning single use plastics like plastic checkout bags, straws, six-pack rings, cutlery, and hard to recycle plates by 2021. The Good News Network has details.

Additionally, several US states like Maryland have made progress in banning foam food containers and plastic bags as reported here by US News.

Otters Get a Second Chance at Love

Harris the otter was lonely after his mate, Apricot, died a few weeks ago. So the staff at the UK Seal Sanctuary created an on-line dating ad for him. A match was found at the Sea Life Scarborough Sanctuary where Pumpkin had recently lost her partner, Eric, who died at the age of 21. Here’s more from CNN.

Barbie Stands Against Racism

Good job, Barbie, for the following video blog where Barbie and her friend Nikki discuss racism, racial bias and discrimination.

A Decade of Work Pays Off

Finally, a message from ABC news and their person of the week, Jaines Andrades, who worked her way from hospital janitor to nurse practitioner.

There’s plenty more good news out there.
