We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

It’s the last Friday of the month–time again for some good news to take you into April (how is it already April??) with a smile.

The story I’ve chosen for this month is about a man from New England who came up with a brilliant way to recycle plastic and polystyrene cups. Many thanks to my friend Carol Thompson for making me aware of this story. As a resident of a beach community, I find it especially useful and interesting.

Here’s how #WATWB works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

These are the cohosts for this month: Shilpa Garg, Sylvia McGrath, Belinda Witzenhausen, Dan Antionand Damyanti Biswas.

  1. This is so amazing. Kudos to Korey for this fab idea of recycling trash to make surfboards. A great way to curb the plastic menace and save our planet too. Thanks for sharing this positive story, Amy and thanks for joining us for the special edition of #WATWB! Cheers ♥


    1. I know of some people who chose to give up single-use plastics for Lent. Finding alternatives to single-use plastics could save billions of tons of garbage!


    1. It seems more and more people are getting behind the movement to reduce the use of plastics (she says as she sips from her metal straw). I was thrilled to see that New York State has passed a ban on plastic bags to go into effect next year. Hawaii banned plastic grocery store bags several years ago and it’s a big step forward. Thanks for visiting.
