Svi već dobro znamo kako je plastični otpad jedan od najvećih zagađivača naše planete. Usprkos tome, reciklira se manje od 10% plastike, a navodno će se proizvodnja utrostručiti do 2040. godine. Nešto moramo poduzeti!

Dragocjena plastika je projekt pokreta “One Army” namijenjen poticanju ljudi da počnu reciklirati plastiku na lokalnoj razini. Oni razvijaju strojeve, a zatim dijele uputstva kako ih reproducirati. Također, prižaju poslovne savjete kako voditi vlastito poslovanje recikliranja. Pokazuju tehnike i detaljno vode kroz cijeli proces. A sve te usluge pružaju besplatno!

Ove dvije kompanije odlučile su okušati sreću te sada proizvode vlastite uratke:

  • Plastic Shed osmišljen je od strane tri prijateljice koje se zajedno bore protiv plastičnog otpada. One uz pomoć “Precious plastic” stroja proizvode naušnice, novčanike i torbe za užinu.
  • Plastico Chido je kompanija iz Meksika. Proizvode pločice, podmetače, pa čak i namještaj te ga potom prodaju online.

We are well aware that plastic waste is damaging ecosystems around the planet. To date, still, less than 10% of all plastic is recycled and production is planned to triple by 2040. We have to act!

Precious plastic is One Army’s amazing project to empower people to start recycling plastic locally. They develop machines and then share instructions on how to replicate them. They also provide business tools to run your own recycling business. They demonstrate techniques and simply walk you through the process. And everything for free!

Here are two companies that took the action and now are making their own goods:

  • Plastic shed was created by Caitilin, Rachel and Camilla who want to fight plastic waste. They have taken the Precious Plastic machine design and are using it to create earrings, wallets, and lunch bags.
  • Plastico Chido, the company run by Gus in Mexico. They use machines developed by Precious Plastic to create tiles, coasters, and even furniture and sell them online.
