Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Robert came to Bocas several years ago and has had his hand in many projects throughout this time. Robert spearheaded the Bocas recycling program in 2012, where he and some volunteers, and a few part time workers, made a positive change in the cleanliness of the islands beaches and town. In a short amount of time, it was staggering to see the amount of recycled materials being removed from the garbage, and saved from being burned or buried in the only one landfill. He estimates “that he had over 1 million bottles that was accumulated, during the period of one and half year he collected the bottles”. The recycling program was a breath of fresh air for the islands residents and many tourists visiting annually.

Message from Robert

People have changed. The world has changed. If we got to a point where we need to drink water in plastic bottles, we surely have changed! Humans have now reached an increasing volume of 7.3 billions peoples on the planet. If each one of us drink only one bottle a day, we are looking at 2.6 trillion bottles a year. Where are they? Where do they go?

Why are developed countries of the world, working so hard to recycle a small percentage of the volume of plastic bottles being discarded, when the developing countries which are greater in volume, have not yet realized what is happening to the planet, with the immense plastic problem we face. 

Unless developed countries organize, unite, and educate the developing countries, and give them an incentive to pick-up and reuse the plastic bottles already discarded, we all loose!

I want the world to realize that we can reuse plastic bottles in many other applications such as:

  1. Home insulation
  2. Rapid temporary shelters after disasters
  3. Buildings for animal’s on farms
  4. Building swimming pools
  5. Water catchment tanks
  6. Septic tanks
  7. Agriculture water ways (land drainage) 
  8. Commercial warehouse construction
  9. Barns
  10. Roads

Let's educate the adults of tomorrow, not to do what our generation did to our planet, regarding the plastic spill.

Say NO to single use plastic bottles
If you say YES, than drink it, and build it


WARNINGS AND PICTURES ON PET BOTTLE LABELS

Many years ago smoking was a fashion, peoples were smoking because it was in, without knowing the secondary effect on their health, until researchers of the World discover the health issues caused by the usage of tobacco. Governments started to oblige the tobacco industries, to put warnings and pictures on pack of cigarette. From that time, peoples started to quit or reduce their consumption of cigarette, because they were made aware of the damage it was doing.

WAKE-UP CALL

Why don't Governments of the World also oblige the single use bottlers to print warnings and pictures on the labels of each PET bottles?

If every time someone bought a drink in a single use PET plastic bottle, would see different pictures of the devastating effect of plastic in our oceans, maybe many peoples would quit or reduce their consumption after knowing the possibility of where their bottles could end up?

Say NO to single use plastic bottles
If you say YES, than drink it, and build it

THE TIME MACHINE

BACK TO THE FUTURE

Cleaning our planet, with Cell phone time, a realistic DREAM?

A true fact is that when you travel in developing Countries, you will notice that almost every one has a cell phone. They don't have money, but they have a cell phone. 90%  of them don't have credit available inside. 

Let’s imagine that fast food chains like McDonald’s or KFC located in developing Countries, offers a Reverse Vending Machine outside in front of their restaurant, where peoples can recycle PET plastic bottles, in exchange for cell phone time.

The fact that there is always a McDonald’s or KFC near, you can imagine the volume of cell phone owners that would now recuperate plastic bottles to exchange them for cell phone time. Even if it's only a few seconds per bottles?

The machine could emit a receipt with a code that could be entered in the phone for credit.

The cell phone time, could be sponsored by Dupont, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Nestle, and all the other single use bottlers, in collaboration with different cell phone companies in each participating Countries of the world?

What a fantastic way to educate peoples of developing Countries, by giving them an incentive to clean our planet by picking-up single use PET plastic bottles, and exchange them for cell phone time….. “TIME for TIME”

This would be a WIN/WIN for all humans.

Say NO to single use plastic bottles
If you say YES, than drink it, and build it
