Help us create an amazing carbon neutral plastic recycling community in Plymouth!
Your plastic waste is precious
Precious Plastic Plymouth and Tavistock is a low-tech, artisan plastic recycling project
Our vision is of a world where creative energy drives environmental change.
Our mission is to provide a tool for local recycling and creative engagement to empower the community to live sustainably. We take waste plastic, shred it and re-mould it, using a small injection moulder.
Currently we can make soap dishes, plant pots and buttons. It is engaging, creative, demonstrates how simple recycling plastic can be and opens up conversations around responsible use of plastic.
Many plastic items are used for only a few minutes but last for hundreds of years. By recycling and reusing existing waste plastic into useful products we reduce the need for new plastic.
