Climate Change - how to use Finnish know-how in fight against climate change

In Finland we have long tradition in recycling bottles and i think we can help under developed countries to fight against climate change issues with our help

I watch video about Maldives and one thing i saw in that video was that they produce very large amount plastic waste. Plastic bottles were everywhere in beach and in sea. I started to think how we could use our know-how in recycling to help under developed countriest to improve their own recycling system in fighting against climate change.

In Finland we have very long tradition in bottle recycling and it is very rewarding to people who returns empty bottles to recycling centers around the world. I think that we could implement "the Finnish way" to other countries and by that help them. I think that in many of those under developed countries there is no reward for those who return their empty bottles to recycling so i think that "the Finnish way" could even turn out to be job for some people especially in those under developed countries.

We could use our know-how and create a consept just like Mc Donalds and sell that consept to all around the world because i think that a little country like Finland can't do much about the climate change in our own country but we could offer our methods to others and achieve better results that way.

Finland could export this formal as an aid for developing countries. It is more important preventing the climate change and looking after the planet together.

This is a really good idea though in developing countries big investments like these can be a bit tricky. It\'s funny though that for example in Australia there\'s only one state (South Australia) who\'s using bottle recycling. In many parts of Europe there\'s is recycling but not as well organized as in Finland. I think exporting this idea could be a form of aid for third world countries in preventing the climate change.

Spreading Finnish know-how in especially bottle recycling is a good idea in my opinion. People need to be rewarded for doing something good and our bottle recycling system could be a effecting system to implement to other countries.
Your idea is actually really good. The funding for the rewards of returning bottles would perhaps have to come from another countries at first, but it would be relatively cheap to establish a system like that, especially if someone would found a non-profit organization for this. I think that people would like to give donations for a good cause like this. I think that the people from developing countries would welcome this opportunity to earn some money and the possibility of creating jobs would be a great help. The actual bottle returning system would have to be a bit different from Finland, but it could work if they hire like traveling vendors who go from village to village and buy these bottles and then return them to somewhere where they can be recycled.
