Plastic Solutions Project
CLOSING THE LOOP ON YOUR PLASTIC WASTE
Australia is in the middle of a recycling crisis. Worldwide, more plastic is produced than what is able to be successfully recycled. For example, in last year alone Australia exported 600,000 tonnes of waste to China, effectively destroying their natural environment as well as our own.
We aim to reuse plastic using our 3 I's- Innovate, Invest and Inform.
We innovate low budget methods of reforming plastic into useful items through the creation of a shredder and extruder using designs from precious plastics.
We invest in clean up events across Victoria.
And last but not least we inform youth and the community of the economic, social and environmental benefits of responsible plastic management through our school's program.
Repurposed Plastic Items
These items were created out of old bottle tops and milk cartons to bring new life to the plastic. Pictured is a clock, round board, phone stand and pencil holder.
