The Agenda – Plastic Wastage with Mariska Nell #WasteMeNot Challenge & Emma Banks from Jumeirah Restaurant Group 10.04.2018

When we talk about beverages, we cannot ignore the plastic waste generated by coffee cups. Last year – of the 3.6 million tonnes of domestic waste generated in Dubai, 30 per cent was plastic waste. Which means we produced one million tonnes of plastic waste in 2017.

We are joined in the studio by Mariska Nell and her friend Marita. They’re doing the 30 day “Waste Me Not” challenge. Mariska is a Dubai based artist who has taken on a 30-day challenge with a friend to encourage more people to refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and compost where possible.

This 30 Day Challenge is from Earth Hour on 24th March to Earth Day on April 22nd.
