Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - TREND WATCH -

It’s an alarm­ing fact that if hu­man be­ings con­tinue to pol­lute at cur­rent lev­els, by 2050, our oceans will con­tain more plas­tic than fish by weight. Time for ac­tion! Ap­ple has achieved its goal of op­er­at­ing en­tirely on re­new­able en­ergy and Star­bucks’ Nex­tgen Cup Chal­lenge of­fers US$10 mil­lion (about R120,5 mil­lion) to the per­son or group who can de­velop a com­postable cof­fee cup. There’s also a new pas­time called “plog­ging” (a com­bi­na­tion of “pick­ing” and “jog­ging”) that’s tak­ing off in Swe­den. It en­cour­ages peo­ple to pick up lit­ter while they’re out run­ning. How will you make a dif­fer­ence in the fight to pro­tect our planet?
