Found Ring And Recycled Teddy Bears
1. A scuba diver in England found a woman’s wedding ring after it fell off her finger and into a river. It was a big deal because the ring is 100 years old and belonged to her grandmother.
2. There’s a factory in India that makes teddy bears, stuffed with . . . USED CIGARETTE BUTTS. But it’s not as nasty as it seems . . . it’s a recycling effort. The employees carefully separate the paper and charred tobacco from the filters, which are thoroughly washed and dried before being used as stuffing.
Founder Naman Gupta says it’s his mission to upcycle the 4.5 trillion cigarette butts and use them in high end stuffed animals.
