全球首創!黎巴嫩用回收菸蒂做衝浪板

海洋中充斥無法分解的垃圾,先前才被禁用的塑膠微粒就是一個。不過您知道「菸蒂」也是污染物之一嗎?黎巴嫩環保人士為保護海洋,把丟棄菸蒂蒐集起來,做成衝浪板。

據al-monitor報導,黎巴嫩的吸菸者在全球排名第3名,每人每月平均要抽掉12.4包;這意味著有大量的廢棄菸蒂。該國環保組織「回收黎巴嫩」(Recycle Lebanon)與貝魯特美國大學(American University of Beirut)合作,以12,000根菸頭再加上其他合成物,打造出全球第一個搭載雙人的12公斤衝浪板。

「回收黎巴嫩」創始人·凱迪(Joslin Kehdy)指出,衝浪板除了以12,000根菸頭為主體外,還使用其他材料,如低密度泡沫塑膠、2亳米的軟木片、生態樹脂和玻璃纖維等,因此支撐力相當好,所有的木頭軟質都由再生木材重製。

凱迪表示,1個菸蒂在不到1小時內就能污染9公升的水。「香菸不全然是紙做的,它的濾嘴是由醋酸纖維素(cellulose acetate)這個生物分解非常緩慢的塑膠製成,丟入海洋裡,就變成無法分解的垃圾。」他認為,回收菸蒂不會消除對環境的破壞,減少抽菸量才是根本之道。

菸蒂衝浪板計劃於2016年開始,希望能藉由這項創舉喚醒人們對塑膠毒物及生產者對廢棄品的重視及環境責任。(艾以琳/綜合外電報導)

 

“We did not want to just shed light on the problem alone but to also offer an awakening to share that a new mindset to redesign products is mandatory and is primarily catalyzed by consumer choices. The reality of a circular economy and regenerative design with biomimicry connecting people to nature is here. We did this by using the cigarette butt waste which is a personal connection to many primary and secondary smokers, especially that Lebanon has been ranked as 3rd in the world for most cigarette consumption. Adding to our alarming air pollution and environmental deterioration, we are raising awareness by collecting butts and up-cycling them into a thin plastic layer on a surfboard which will be achieved thanks to local Lebanese shaper, Paul Abbas, making it more robust and sustainable to ride the wave of waste management, habit change, environmental awareness and protection.” Joslin Kehdy 2017 interview by Vulcan on #connect4climate #film4climate

Sunday Thoughts short film produced for Film4Climate Contest with the World Bank and Connect4Climate to raise awareness about products designed to waste and the cigarette surfboard. Chosen top 10 in MENA region and in top 80 of 864 global submissions, presented during COP22 in 2016
