Most dogs want to get into anything they're not supposed to, like the trash can.
So it somehow seems appropriate that they can now sleep in garbage. Or at least in a dog house made from recycled trash.
UBQ, an Israel-based company that converts mixed trash bound for landfills into thermoplastic, is supplying its material (also called UBQ) to Plásticos Rimax, a Colombian molder of pet products.
“Loving animals goes hand in hand with caring for the planet,” Elsa Coello Costa, communication and digital marketing manager at Rimax, said in a news release. “With our initial launch in Colombia, we anticipate a methodical expansion throughout Latin America.”
By converting organic household waste into sustainable bio-based materials, UBQ™ is a novel climate positive innovation that can be used for the manufacturing of thousands of products. It is clean, sustainable, cost-effective and recyclable.
