PLASTIC RECYCLING FROM START TO FINISH THAT IS LOCAL COMMUNITY AND ENTREPRENEURIALLY DRIVEN
The Loving My Planet team were pleased to discover the potential of the Precious Plastic initiative.
Here’s how they describe it – “We have created machines, documentation, video tutorials, campaigns and a platform to empower people across the planet to start working with plastic waste locally while trying to decentralise and localise plastic recycling technologies, infrastructures and knowledge by providing open-source designs for machines, moulds and consumer products, as well as business models and tools for you to set up and run a recycling workspace. We share everything open source for anyone to use and benefit from. This means that all the knowledge, know-how, processes, methodologies and tools are available online, for free at all times. This open source philosophy is at the core of Precious Plastic and shapes most decisions within our team. We believe that collaboration is stronger than competition and that the plastic problem can only be solved collectively.”
