Plastic Solutions Project

Closing the Loop on Plastic Waste

Our Problem

Australia is in the middle of a recycling crisis with an excess amount of plastic being produced than we can recycle. As a result, we have been dumping tens of thousands of tonnes of plastic in Indonesia, destroying their natural environment as well as our own. Plastic Solution project works to reduce the amount of plastic ending up in landfill, highways and waterways.

Our Solution

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.

We inform youth and the community of the economic, social and environmental benefits of responsible plastic management through our schools’ program.
