Earth Day 2018: End Plastic Pollution #EarthDay

This year Earth Day is about focusing on plastic pollution. As you might have already seen, while researching the structure of the subject from 2016’s A bacterium that degrades and assimilates poly(ethylene terephthalate) research teams at the University of Portsmouth and the NREL have engineered an enzyme that is even better at breaking down PET plastics!

While this is exciting news, there is still value in taking a moment to consider our own impact on the environment. EartyDay.org has a plastic consumption calculator with a special feature where you can make a pledge to reduce your consumption here! Searching for some Earth friendly tips? Don’t miss these 45 tips from EarthDay.org


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
