Creating China's First “Milk Bottle Road”

Blog

Dow has teamed with dairy brand Shiny Meadow to construct China’s first road made with recycled plastic milk bottles. The project gives hard-to-recycle plastic a second life and helps keep plastic waste out of the oceans, landfills, streets and rivers.

The “Milk Bottle Road” used more than 6,000 used milk bottles and other plastic waste and is located at the East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) Xuhui campus.

Blog

Dropping a smartphone can be a costly accident.

That’s how Otter Products made a name for itself, by protecting all the precious digital lifelines we rely on in a case that can stand up to major malpractice. That same thinking of protection led the same team that created Otterbox smartphone cases to launch an entirely new brand called Liviri.
