A few days back we had seen how ECOALF [a fabric from recycled PET bottles] were used in making trolleys and bags that simply showed us the way to be a smart [eco-friendly]consumer. Similarly these gowns made from 100% post-consumer plastic shows another dimension of the recycling world.
You enjoyed a get-together at your home and then let your dishwasher do the dishes. That’s a normal routine anyone with a dishwasher would do. What follows after the dishwasher has cleaned up, is the stacking of the dried dishes and cutlery into your cabinets.
