Paris olympics to give waste a second life with recycled plastic chairs.

Next year's games is likely to promote sustainability and raising awareness about recycling in creative ways.Spectators at the Paris 2024 olympic games will sit on chairs made of plastic recycled from local bins.Marius Hamelot,co-founder of Le Pave',the eco-construction firm behind the initiative said that there were shortages of virgin materials which led a lot of manufacturers to switch to waste. Despite the logistical challenges and strains on global supply chains,the seating scheme is part of wider efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of the olympic games,which promise to be the greenest yet. The organisers have said they will slash emissions in half compared to previous games by utilising existing structures,encouraging public transport use and controversially-carbon offsetting. This approach reduces energy consumption and avoids the production of new waste,embracing the circular economy.Approximately 11,000 seats will be made from recycled materials. https://www.euronews.com/green/2023/06/22/paris-olympics-to-give-waste-a-second-life-with-recycled-plastic-chairs.

            Their aim of recycling plastics to 11,000 seats is very commendable. May they keep it up and utilize the other options to recycle more.
