Fortunately, there’s a lot of bright minds out there developing new products and business ideas to tackle the waste problem and make it easier for people to adopt a greener lifestyle. Read on to find out more about six innovative ideas that can help reduce the waste of single-use products in everyday life.

record-simonWhilst the Tesla was having it’s midday top-up today, Simon spent some time talking to ABC 891 via telephone from Glendambo (which is about half-way between Coober Pedy and Port Augusta in South Australia).

He spoke about the Global Green Challenge and the Tesla’s record breaking run yesterday, amongst other things. He also answered a few of the common questions that people have  been asking.

Here’s an MP3 of the interview.

According to our real-time satellite tracking, the team are just passing Pimba and Woomera in northern South Australia. They’ll be stopping over night tonight in Port Augusta.
