Ducks GM Pat Verbeek: Team 'not done' with offseason additions
Verbeek mentioned that he would like to add another forward and defenseman to the organization, but before doing so, he wants to make sure the players he brings in are a good fit. Whoever the Ducks add, if anyone, wouldn’t be the first of this offseason, the team making a splash on the opening day of free agency, signing forwards Frank Vatrano and Ryan Strome to three and five year contracts respectively. Signing the two veterans seems to mark a turning point for Anaheim, who has been pretty clearly categorized as a rebuilder for the better part of the previous four seasons, last making the playoffs in 2017-18.
In order to reduce packaging waste, the German Environmental Aid (DUH) demands moreand other disposable articles. "The littering of public space has achieved dramatic proportions in recent years," said Duh federal manager Barbara Metz. "Something urgently needs to be done to switch on a multi -way." The organization recently wrote down 202 cities and asked for soon answers how the town halls wanted to proceed.
The DUH pleads for funding for restaurants that change on a multi -way and have extra costs for dishwasher and dishes. The DUH also considers municipal taxes sensible to make the disposable packaging more expensive. In addition, for example, authorities should no longer be allowed to use cups, plates or cohesion boxes in urban canteens that are only designed for one -time use.
Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar open to long-term extensions with Flames
The worry for many Flames fans when they saw the return was whether these two players would be around more than a few months given their contract situations. After watching Johnny Gaudreau leave in free agency without getting anything in return, the Flames won’t be able to do the same with Huberdeau and Weegar. If they aren’t going to re-sign, flipping them somewhere else before the end of the season will be critical.Of course, extensions won’t come cheap. Huberdeau has been one of the top playmakers in the league for years now and is coming off a 115-point season.
tons of plastic waste Avoidable
, according to environmental aid, could be avoided in the 202 cities, which have now been contacted, more than 2.5 billion disposable cups, meal boxes, plates and places. As a result, 27,000 tons would be less garbage and 84,000 tons of CO2 would be saved. The estimate is included in the amount of CO2 that would apply to the production of the reusable alternatives.

in Corona times, the amount of disposable dishes has grown, for example because people work a lot in the home office and order food from delivery services. There are therefore more pizza boxes and plastic shells in the garbage cans than before. In addition, there are masses of to-go coffee cups that are thrown away after one-time use.

reusable alternative is mandatory
A federal law could soon bring a little improvement: From January, restaurants will have to offer reusable alternative. You can continue to sell the food in disposable packs, but the consumer must have the opportunity to fall back on a reusable alternative. From the perspective of DUH expert Metz, this is far from sufficient. "A restaurateur would have been sufficient for the obligation to offer if he puts a reusable cup on the shelf and lets you dust it there." There are also extensive exemptions for smaller companies. "In Berlin-Mitte alone, more than 500 snacks and kiosks do not fall under the reusable obligation to offer."
The environmental aid now hopes for the cities so that the garbage problem is tackled consistently. Already in 2020 and 2021 she wrote a total of 130 cities and counties and asked for measures. The feedback was mostly positive, says Metz. "Most city administrations are aware that there is a need for action." The willingness is there, but sometimes there is still a lack of measures.
as positive examples of cities that actively act against disposable packaging called the Environmental Aid Hamburg, Munich and Tübingen. In the Swabian city, a consumption tax has been in effect since this year, which includes 50 cents for each disposable drink. Due to a legal dispute with the local McDonald's branch, the tax should only be collected if Tübingen has prevailed before the Federal Administrative Court.
