The Future promises Plastic made of Banana Peels developed by a Turkish teenage girl

Yes, plastic made from Banana peels, but it´s not that what is amazing. It´s that a girl called Elif Bilgin not even attending University yet, living in a country with so much political arguments has had the curiosity, willpower, boldness, knowledge and belief to create the greatest solution of our century.Elif_Bilgin_photo_BT_FINAL

Yet, I have not seen any news, except when she won the Google Science Fair a couple of years ago (that´s where I found out about her incredible personality). To me, this girl represents pure genius, although probably her mum/dad/grandpa/teacher is a chemist, who brought that curiosity and knowledge into her world. I still believe, that we should appreciate her uniqueness and look for people, who change the world for the better.

I hope this girl gets sponsored to change the entire plastic industry, because I am sure there is probably even a better solution, but as long as money plays a role, the big corporations will not let anyone disrupt their market share, until someone like Elon Musk decides that it is time to change.
