Aldi rolls out natural refrigerants, 'Zero Waste Revolutionaries' in Indonesia, grizzly bear trophy hunting banned in British Columbia and 'Quiet Hour' shopping introduced in Victoria

There are so many ways people are working on 'The Big Fix'! Aldi has rolled out natural refrigerants across all its UK

stores, because moving away from hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) in refrigeration is one of the most effective ways of reversing climate change; 'Zero Waste Revolutionaries' in Indonesia have succeeded in achieving a mandatory plastic bag charge which goes into effect in January 2018, and are inspiring thousands in East Java to become Surabaya river advocates to prevent illegal dumping; the Government of British Columbia has banned grizzly bear trophy hunting throughout the province and all hunting in the Great Bear Rainforest; and two Coles supermarkets in Victoria are going quiet for an hour each week as part of a low-sensory shopping experience for people with autism.
