Plastic Beach Party is a recycling collective. We joined forces in a Design Thinking Workshop to envision and create a future where our beaches are not covered in plastic waste. Our goal is to create a movement where we reduce our dependence on plastic in part by creating a financially sustainable model to recycle plastic into locally relevant re-usable products.
Our plastic recycling machines: a plastic shredder, compression oven, injection mold and plastic extruder, we're volunteer build using opensource designs by precious plastics, crowdfunded and using borrowed tools. We can handle about 100 - 200 kilos of plastic waste a month but hope to do much more in the future!
We offer plastic waste management services for businesses, this includes the collection of plastic waste, a report of types of plastic, and ways to decrease plastic waste. We are research and prototype the development of recycled products and plan to start selling recycled products in late 2017.
